    Animated Favicons, Firefox Only?

    By | September 12, 2007 | 3 Comments

    Web BrowsersIs there anything wrong with the code itself or only Firefox (and Firefox based browsers) can handle animated favicons?

    [link href="ico.gif" TYPE="image/gif" REL="icon"]
    Changed <> with the [] so code would be visible.

    http://www.pokelondon.com

    I’ve checked this site with Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 2.0.0.6, Opera 9.23, Opera 9.5 Alpha, Safari 3.0.3 Beta, and only in Firefox I’ve seen animated favicon. Any ideas?

    Firefox First Run Page… Come On

    By | September 5, 2007 | 0 Comments

    FirefoxSome time ago I’ve reviewed 4 web browsers home pages and compared their web design, Firefox was the winner. This time I have some critics regarding Firefox “first run” page. Come on, this is not professional. How come that Mozilla’s Web Designers Team (or something like that) can’t make pictures look good? I had no troubles doing that.

    Firefox First Run
    Left side – Mozilla’s Web Designers Team
    Right side – FavBrowser.com, Me.

    I think that their buttons background is ugly. There are smarter ways to reduce pictures size without losing so much of their quality.
