Everyone Loves IE – Sitemeter Kills Thousands of Sites for IE Users

By | August 4, 2008 | 2 Comments

Everyone Loves IE - Sitemeter Kills Thousands of Sites for IE UsersThe behavior began few days ago whene Sitemeter updated their scripts. Unfortunately, they forgot about a bug of the Internet Explorer (really old one) that has been causing a “Operation aborted” error.

If your web page had a Sitemeter counter, Internet Explorer users eventually see an “Operation aborted” error message. Once they click OK, the whole page disappears and is replaced by a blank page.

Whose fault is this? Both of course. However, this is not a new and/or unknown bug; they just didn’t test it on Internet Explorer = bad idead.

By | July 11, 2008 | 0 Comments

CSS Dzone recently published an interview with David Storey from Opera Software. Feel free to check it. Storey was probably interviewed long time ago (although published on 2008/07/08 – 5:45pm) as one of the questions are:

With the Opera browser being in it’s second beta cycle for the Kestrel release and Dragonfly only having entered Alpha, can we as developers expect a GA version of Dragonfly to accompany the GA release of Kestrel?

Opera DragonflyOpera Dragonfly… The big secret was finally revealed. As it was expected, Opera Dragonfly is developer tools. Firefox had Firebug for a long time so it’s not a big surprise that Opera decided to create something like that as well… As David Storey said: “Opera has been lacking real developer tools far too long”. Alpha version will be released on May 6th, 2008. There aren’t many known details yet, we’re waiting.

Web Design for ROI: Turning Browsers into Buyers & Prospects into LeadsSo yesterday I’ve received a book called “Web Design for ROI: Turning Browsers into Buyers & Prospects into Leads” and just finished reading it. No, I usually don’t finish books in a few days :-) There were a plenty of interesting points. Since I’m a web designer myself (and most of the FavBrowser.com visitors owns web sites as well), thought I’ll let you know about it too. Also, there was one funny phrase (not the only one) which I’d like to quote. It tells a bit about web designers and what they experience sometimes.

Sure, I can make the box blue instead of red. Of course that will ruin the design integrity of the web page, so I’ll have to redesign the whole thing. But now that I know you only care about the box being blue, I can probably do whatever I want with the rest of the page and you’ll never notice.

What about you? Have you recently finished reading any interesting books (no, not novels :-))?
