I’ll probably post more on this subject as time goes on but one thing that has really irked me in this last few days as I’ve worked on designing my first theme is the workarounds one has to go through to have something that appears right using Firefox look the same in IE.
I never realized the degree of difference between the two browsers (innards wise anyway) until I started learning css and fooling around with it more.? I used to be an IE fan but I got hooked on Firefox when I discovered tab browsing and the incredible array of extensions and plug-ins you can get for it.? Recently I installed the developer toolbar extension by Chris Pederick and it really does help in rooting out coding and design bugs…in Firefox anyway.
I really am not a great coder by any means but just the feel of using Firefox is a lot better than IE.? Looking at your site over and over again on Firefox as you design it is like having a nice smooth milkshake compared to eating sand when working with IE.
And to think I actually liked using Internet Explorer all those years…well I’m chasing the fox now!
