How Random Babbling Becomes Corporate Policy

Despite server bitching...

...I've hacked my journal style a bit more. Not that anyone can see the changes, since I keep getting timeouts trying to view it. But, up along the top, I've got sexay sexay popup menus. I'm not quite sure what to put in them, but damn! Who cares! They're cool. 100% CSS, and because of that, not totally cross-browser compatible (read: it breaks in IE, because IE does not properly implement the :hover elemement). So, if you're reading my journal and using IE... fuck off and die, or download a real browser. I can list lots of reasons for you to not use IE, starting with bad compliance with standards, and going all the way to ActiveX, which can be used to allow someone to execute code on your computer. This is a feature, not a bug.

Finally, IE isn't really all that user friendly. I've known people who swear by it for its simplicity, but I don't call opening thousands of new windows simple when I want to look at multiple pages (compared to tabs, it's horrible). Nor do I call installing a seperate piece of software as a popup blocker, when any decent browser blocks popups on its own. So people, lets support compliance and use real browsers from now on? I swear by Firebird, which is using the open source (and standards compliant) Gecko layout engine, which also powers the mainline Mozilla and Netscape. Firebird has a streamlined interface and is blisteringly fast.

Get off the MSmack people.
