Browser Compatibility

Published: June 22nd, 2004

I’m utterly dismayed at the fact that different browsers handle the same HTML code in widely different ways. It’s very disheartening to see that you spend time trying to displays pages nicely, only to find out that IE does it one way, Opera another way, and Safari still another way (among others I could mention). Couldn’t we have a REAL standard, for goodness sake!?

My Browser Share statistics show that over 50% of all visitors use Internet Explorer, but there are many others who prefer to use other browsers (and I don’t blame them…). I promise I don’t code pages with the “best viewed with IE” tag in mind. It just happens that many times the only browser that displays pages exactly as I intended is IE. It is very unfortunate, for instance, that for some pages you get an awful running right margin in Opera or Safari (but it looks fine with Internet Explorer!). I gladly admit my coding limitations, and if anyone can enlighten me on how to fix this glitch I’ll be most grateful. But, at the same time, I openly confess that I’m sick and tired of having to spend so much time taking care of these little things that make one’s site look unprofessional, rather than focusing on the really important issues. Wasn’t technology supposed to make our lives easier? Come on then!
