Get yourself to the Mozilla site and download the latest version of Firefox. If you are still using Internet Explorer you should ask yourself why you bother accessing the internet. If you’re still one of those mindless folk that still uses IE6 then you should be asking yourself why you even own a computer.
I have to agree with him. Seriously, folks, Internet Explorer in general, and IE6 in particular, makes the lives of web developers really unpleasant because it does not render pages like any other browser. And IE7 renders them differently to IE6 and they both ignore W3C standards on really basic things.
For the geeky designers amongst you, Firefox 3 is a reasonable move forward and does support some CSS3 attributes, such as rounded corners. Just think: rounded corners without having to use images! However, since these attributes are not standardised yet, you need to use some unusual code.
The code for this is as follows:
border:1px solid #000;
-mozis obviously for Mozilla (whose rendering engine also drives browsers such as Camino) and
-webkitis for the engine with drives Safari and other browsers—such as Konqueror and Shiira. You can even control each corner independently: here are the details.
Of course, the most advanced browser out there is Webkit—an Open Source project to push the Webkit engine to the very limits. Nightly builds are available for both Windows and Mac and it's a beautiful thing to play with: features that it supports include CSS reflections, CSS masking (even of videos), CSS gradients, CSS animations and transforms, and lots of other really very cool stuff.
Of course, none of these cool things (including the very simple rounded corners) can be implemented easily whilst people still use the fucking gall-stone of the web: Internet Explorer.*
For the love of the god, stop using that piece of shit. Seriously. Then we can actually embrace the web properly and have a happy time.
Oh, and since a huge amount of time is spent hacking code and debugging for Internet Explorer, you might just find that your website design bills actually go down too.
A FANTASY: all the companies who have ever had a website built, go back and ask the designers how much it cost to hack and debug for IE. And then they all get together and sue Microsoft for that money...
* Or until IE becomes standards compliant. Hahahahaha! It'll never happen. And no, IE8 is not looking as though it'll be properly standards compliant.
