  • Internet Explorer, Compatibility, and Security

    I found a great list on the blog/news section for the ocPortal CMS, 10 IE compatibility problems that you might not have realised. While the post is related to ocPortal, the Internet Explorer compatibility issues likely will apply to any CMS viewed by the browser. Over the year's ocProducts has maintained a private list of issues in different web browsers, and if there's one thing that is consistent it is that Internet Explorer has the majority of the problems. Sometimes they are bugs, but as…

  • Just plain busy

    This is a busy week for me with an all-day software load scheduled this week for my work's operational systems. likely will not see many original posts from me for a few days.  I will however continue to post some links and excerpts  on CMS news items that catch my attention. The good news, it looks like the layout issues with the Drupal theme I'm using, Zen, are finally being resolved.  The layout issues were with how the theme displayed in Internet Explorer 6.  No one has…

  • IE7 update available for Vista while Windows XP users wait

    Steve Reynolds, Microsoft Internet Explorer Program Manager, announced on the Microsoft Internet Explorer Blog that an update for Internet Explorer 7 is available. The IE7 update "addresses an issue experienced by some users where CPU usage is high when they are navigating a page that contains multiple frames or when multiple frames are navigated simultaneously". If you have experienced any such performance issue, Microsoft is encouraging you to download and install the update. While a software…

  • IEBlog: IE6 and IE7 Running on a Single Machine

    Personally, I would just use an old Windows machine with Internet Explorer 6 already on it.  Why do we always make this more complicated than it is?. Many of you have asked how to run IE6 and IE7 in a side by side environment. As Chris Wilson blogged about early this year, it’s unfortunately not so easy to do. There are workarounds, but they are unsupported and don’t necessarily work the same way as IE6 or IE7 would work when installed properly. As Chris said, the best way to use multiple…

  • Perhaps IE7 is an improvement

    I know giving Microsoft a hard time is everyone's best pastime sport, but perhaps IE7 is an improvement over IE6. While there have been some complaints about IE7 "breaking" sites...the uproar is a lot quieter than I expected. I had anticipated a little bit more from the general public. Also, it is also nice to note that IE7 isn't included in many of the "critical"updates that the rest of the IE suite are.From the IEBlog:This is a “Critical” update that applies to all supported IE…

  • One cool Web design tool

    While browsing some of my favorite sites looking for quirks in Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) that I needed to be aware of for Web design, I came across one of the most helpful design tools I've seen in a long time. Caleb Gilbert recommended at a site called Browsershots. His recommendation was prompted on the need for non-IE7 users such as Mac users to actually see what their sites would look like in IE7. This is a design tool not only useful for those designing themes…

  • Lorelle on WP: Firefox 2 versus Internet Explorer versus WordPress

    Lorelle VanFossen makes some great observations in his post with regards to which browser, Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 2, work with Wordpress. Internet Explorer 7 was just released for Windows XP last week. If everything sticks to schedule, Firefox 2 will likely be out sometime this week.Ms. VanFossen's article doesn't say it, but IE7 has been noticed to work better with AJAX type sites than IE6. Of course the original question though is how does IE7 compare with Firefox when running…

  • PunBB 1.2.14 and Internet Explorer 7

    I'm extremely excited to to see the stylesheet fixes for IE7. A few open source projects have been extremely slow in addressing the fix changes for IE. Some developers, in my opinion, seem to be personal opinions ahead of the needs of their projects and their users. Granted, IE7 may not be fully CSS compliant. However, Microsoft has come a long way in trying to develop a more compliant IE6 by listening to many of the demands in the open source community. The fact is that IE7 has a better chance of alienating IE6 users since it is a big change for the Microsoft Windows drone user. I think it's time we cut Microsoft some slack...
