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?

Web Browsers Flame War. Wanna Join?

By | August 19, 2007 | 2 Comments

Just kidding, don’t do that.

There’s an interesting thread (Have Firefox pre-installed as default browser) posted.

I haven’t read it all, just 1 out of 50 comments or so and found that it’s just another flame war (or will be the one soon).

There’s even a comment from Daniel Goldman (Opera Software).

I’m sure we (I work for Opera Software) could work some revenue sharing plan with Dell. Part of our revenue from the desktop browser comes from Google.

Any other companies wanna join too and try to get their stake from Dell? Everyone is just talking about how good or bad their favorite browser is.

One more interesting comment by sazar

There are other options besides Firefox, why promote one over the others? This will simply create a browser monopoly of sorts with Firefox. IE comes bundled with the OS and allows people to get online for the first time, this shouldn’t be a handicap. If the user is savvy enough, they will be able to download the browser by themselves.

I agree.
