I always find some "illness" when I face the topic "cross-browser compatibility." Also, and I have yet to understand the true reason, among all browsers I know that most "obnoxious" he always remains: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6! Unfortunately, the release of IE 6 is still in circulation and are frequent reports of problems viewing the pages.

Honestly, I've tried everything! I did not want to use an external application to read RSS feeds! I thought (and I changed my mind) that having a browser open already was uncomfortable bind to a different application.
So I started with an RSS reader in Internet Explorer 7. But since I installed Windows Vista I denied view feeds ... security issues. If "unlock" IE7, in due course, I cominiciano to appear "alert" scattered (a little 'out of Windows and a little' good-Norton 360) I invite you to restore the security settings of the browser properly, otherwise be "flushed" from around the world. In short, with IE7 - at least on Windows Vista - it's not really possible to read RSS feeds in peace.
Abandonment IE7 (finally!) and I promote good FireFox as the default browser (it was really now). Then install Sage , an extension for FireFox . Simple ... Maybe too! Let's just say "limited". However, today, I downloaded FeedReader , version 3.12, one of the most well-known, at least taking a look around the Web Fantastic! A new world really. Stumble this player also, again for Windows, FreeDeamon , I did very well ... though in some ways I prefer FeedReader .
In principle, when you insert an image into an HTML document should be used to its original size. However, the TAG
IMG allows you to force the width (width) and height (height) of any image, Independently from the original size. This scaling is done - of course - from the browser.
Use the original size of an image is a good thing, although in some cases involves a double work for the web designer and / or dynamic engines (for example CMS or graphics manipulation libraries) on the Web Server. A classic slide show, for example, usually show previews or thumbnail (reduced size images) show that if you select the original image larger.
A consideration, but obviously underestimated, while developing applications in Adobe Flash: the difference between the Player is used for testing within the IDE Flash and the object (ActiveX or EMBED) used by our browser. Who owns the version "Macromedia" Flash MX (version 8 to speak, but this speech actually applies to any version of Flash ...) when developing a movie and try it then runs within the IDE Flash Player linked to the development package. Then when you publish your movie on the net and it has been "testing" with the Flash Player browser you may experience some - substantial - differences!
Located in Sunnyvale, California, Yahoo brings together Silicon Valley WebBuilder Mike Shaver of Mozilla, Chris Wilson of Microsoft's IE team and Hoon Lie of Opera, to discuss on the current state of eternal war between the browser.
It should be emphasized are the words of Mike Shaver of Mozilla:
Do not look to the W3C for the future
And the criticisms of the non-presence of Apple:
They refused to send someone saying that "Save we are busy writing software."
That, by the way, is 10 miles from where the meeting was held!
It happened to the TV to turn into Net TV, as had happened to the Radio Net Radio to become, not to mention the music! Now, as mentioned in other posts, it is also an official for the Software to transform short in Net Software!
Adobe , which we know has recently acquired Macromedia, officially the Web Application - Web 2.0 - in real RIA (Rich Internet Applications) with the announcement of wanting to take on the well-known Web-editing software Photoshop. It is the recent ' agreement between Adobe and Photobucket to make available online a technology for the remix and editing video. Thanks to the new technology developed for Flash 9 , with ActionScript 3.0 , Adobe aims high, anticipating that within six months will be available online a version of Photoshop-based, precisely, on Flash technology.
Indeed the new capabilities of ActionScript 3.0 (involving projects such as Flex and Apollo - see also Web2.0: Adobe tries with Apollo and Ajax Rich Internet Application ) make it the perfect candidate for the implementation of real Ajax RIA on the Web , on the other hand, you see ousted from his throne in this new scenario. Despite the countless Ajax Framework, some of excellent quality, produced in the course of recent years, Flash provides an environment more advanced and easy to manipulate. In addition, we talk about one of the world's most popular Plugin: Flash has in fact behind a few years older than Ajax and derivatives.
Furthermore, it is obvious that Adobe Flash choose, he now being the producer. However, there are technical issues that can be considered - to date - to be resolved in a harmonious way only by using technologies such as Flash. Taking a look at the new ActionScript 3.0 we immediately realize the enormous development possibilities offered by this new platform. The ECMA standard of the language and the new objects provided by the Framework, you arrive at a level of detail possible with previous versions of Flash: one for all, for example, the ability to access the data of an image loaded from Bitmap disc!
The other attack is made directly from the inside, hitting the Ajax Framework with the Flash card. The winning element in this strategy is the use of Flash, Flash technology, which is used both in Flex , both in Apollo , both in standalone version as we are already accustomed to seeing (simple SWF file for instance)! There is no doubt that such a scenario is extremely attractive for developers, Web and otherwise. What becomes immediately realizable in Flash reusability in several ways, without forcing me to change a single line of code and, moreover, without worrying about compatibility!
All this, in my opinion, is an important step forward, a breakthrough of considerable proportions that also involves the world of games and Marketing. We'll talk again soon, make no mistake!
Here is the answer to the dramatic incompatibilities with different browsers currently available. Browsershots.org is a service - free for now and open source - which provides a simple way to check if a site is displayed in the same way across platforms and browsers.
Thanks to a small server farm housewife, the authors of this useful service provide the video output of the screens generated by your web, so you can verify the correctness of the interpretation HTML / CSS on multiple machines and browsers: PLD Linux 2.0 ( Ac), Windows 2003 (Server), Windows NT 5.1 (XP), Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and others.
The site is really well maintained, with lots of documentation wiki, springs, roadmap and timeline. . You can also view the latest the state of the code-of-process and the status of the The only sore point, but surmountable, is the time required for creating screen-shot, a little 'slow! However, it is a big help to the Web Developer to verify the correctness of their work, without having to install browser and / or virtual machines to live with - for example - Internet Explorer 6 and 7. Are supported virtually all browsers, FireFox to Safari. Interesting is the possibility of verifcare IE6 and IE7, along with versions 5.01 and 5.5.
It is time to make a decision. The year 2007 is now up and running and it is therefore unnecessary to indulge further. Microsoft Vista is upon us, and 2008 will be his year. Windows XP is about to leave the place to the last born in the house Gates, last - among other things - of its kind.
So it is obvious - if someone if he had not yet noticed - a sense of urgency in updating the most used tool of the century (if not the millennium), ie the browser.
Recently released as an automatic update - but optional for reasons of monopoly and antitrust - Microsoft Intrenet Explorer 7 for owners of Windows becomes an obvious choice. The update is highly recommended especially for reasons of sucurezza and accessibility on the Web The discovery of flaws in the codes is not new, but the latest versions are notoriously less attackable because hackers have not had the time to discover the holes from which insinuate hacks and worms.
So here's 5 good reasons, I think, to go immediately to Internet Explorer 7 (IE7):
- It is the browser of the next generations, so better to just get familiar with its new features
- Better stability and safety
- Better care about updates and add-in support
- Easier navigation on the Web, where the technology used in IE7 comes closer to that already included in other popular browsers such as FireFox, Opera, etc. ... so - at last - be able to properly view some Web sites, waterways today only with FireFox
Why stick back?
Going on keeping to amaze the total difference in yield between different browsers on the market. IE7 is the PNG (8-bit or 24) in a different way from FireFox. Even Opera is not free from some strange event in this regard. In particular, the PNG used as a background rendered so different from IE7, Opera and FireFox. The latter is the one that performs better than everyone and in this regard it is time to appoint browser's "Century"! Kudos to the development team.
IE7 creates a nice effect cutting of a PNG image used as a background repeat-x. If you try to create an image of 200 × 200 pixels with a gradient that goes from black (0 × 000000) to gray (0xEEEEEE) vertically and positioned in the CSS as the background of the body in repeating a horizontal (repeat-x), setting the background body color 0xEEEEEE - that is the end of the gradient, you will notice that only the detachment makes it perfectly FireFox, IE7 and Opera show a nice cutting effect (but slightly different!): in practice we see the end of our 200 image × 200 and the beginning of the background color TV.
One way to solve the problem is to save our image in GIF ...
But the NPCs were not supported by IE7?
It 'now time - for Web developers - to take drastic measures against the dogged craze of the incompatibility between browsers. We propose, therefore, a sympathetic boycott of Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 that, after years of development, blogs, white papers and referendum, continues to show obvious symptoms of chronic incompatibility. Sorry, ultimately constantly criticizing the work of the "colleagues" in Redmond, but the defects found in the latest release of Explorer are so macroscopic that can not be perceived as mere oversights.
The most worrying thing is the presence of blatant bugs already present in version 6 of IE! You can not, therefore, accept such behavior from those who have a monopoly of the undisputed most popular Internet browsing software. Unfortunately, in fact, Internet Explorer 6 is still the most used browser, FireFox although in recent years has come proudly on his way to a success all deserved.
Browser all the same?
Some claim that a perfect cross-browser compatibility will never be reached. In fact what is the real difference between Internet Explorer and FireFox? To date, the functions of feed, zoom, cards, etc. ... are present on virtually all browsers on the market, from Safari to Opera. So which to choose? Maybe you do not have to choose! It 'just that what is missing. Today, however, we are all forced to choose, both as a Web Developer that as the end-user. The experience, in fact, teaches us that the site is navigable with Safari, but other one only works with Firefox. In practice, on your machine, you should have at least three quarters browser to be sure to browse the Internet with confidence nell'immmensità!
Which it seems absurd!
And the best part is that this is already done!
If you add a site to your favorites you must remember to export it in the other four browsers, otherwise if it never tomorrow you are surfing with a browser other than not finding the link that you were - rightly - stored. If you store a certificate from your bank? The lists of feed? In short, this is a game in the massacre, not computer!
Each of us is free - or should be free - to install the browser on your PC it deems most appropriate. The issue is that this freedom we are denied by the incompatibility of the browser and the work of Web Developer gets tiring, expensive (in terms of time and money) and not efficient, with continuous risks of hidden bugs and other flaws!
