Fixed intransparent Picture for the Diva: Microsoft Internet Explorer

I finally fixed the intransparent picture in the header of this blog. The picture of the “yellow marker”:


This is a PNG. Only in Internet Explorer it looked like this. I changed it with Photoshop to a GIF:


Now the header looks the same, and good, everywhere.

I did not notice earlier, because I NEVER use IE, unless Microsoft forces me to, through some windows update process, that only IE can handle.

I suggest everybody to add JavaScript to all their pages with this functionality:

If IE is detected, the user is forwarded to some other page, telling it to download Opera, Firefox, Safari or whatever other Browser that conforms with the standards. Thus not allowing any browsing with Internet Explorer at all.

The next step is to add this functionality a step further up, into the webserver software. Then into the routers.

Think about it, otherwise we never get out of the browser hell :-)

  3. I’m really loving the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog audience have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

  4. Hi there! I understand this is somewhat off-topic but
    I had to ask. Does managing a well-established
    blog like yours require a large amount of work? I’m
    brand new to operating a blog however I do write
    in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share
    my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have
    any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!
