New browsers, new acid test

HTML 5 Modern Browser ReviewWith all the new versions of browsers being released lately we wanted to take a good look at each. We use all the major browsers to test the websites and HTML templates we build. We need to be sure the HTML will be rendered identically on all of the browsers and operating systems that might ever be used to view that particular code.

The older Acid 3 test for browsers was a great test to check browsers for XHTML 1.1/CSS2 compatibility. Indeed, some currently popular browsers fail the older Acid 3 test, but most pass it easily.

What we wanted was a test that checks for HTML 5/CSS 3 compatibility and we found that at html5test.com, this seem be a very detailed test of the HTML 5 capabilities of a particular browser.

Customizing the Firefox 4 toolbar

Firefox 4We’ve been excited to see what Firefox 4 has to offer. After installation the first thing we noticed is that the reload button is missing. Well, not missing exactly, but not in the place it used to be and not where it’s located on most other browsers. By default Firefox 4 puts the reload button to the right of the address bar, the place where the website URL is shown. But, usually the reload button is to the left of the address bar next to the back and next buttons.

Use a fully updated browser for maximum performance and security

Modern Browsers
If you’ve been putting off updating your web browser we hope you’ll take a look at some reasons why you might want to try out the latest browsers.

The biggest reason you’ll need to update your browser is functionality. Many new websites and web applications will simply not allow you to use your old browser with their services. You might notice you’re not able to do some of the things you used to do if a website you’ve been using for years is updated with new technology that your current browser can’t handle.

We can make any website work and look the same on all operating systems and browsers, but depending on how old the browser is we might need to make more adjustments to the HTML and CSS. Some new technologies are simply not possible to support on the older browsers, if a web developer would like to use some more advanced technology, there is a risk that older browser won’t handle it. This leads to developers moving forward and those who either cannot or have not updated their browsers might get left behind.

How to get HTML 5 working in IE 6 and IE 7

Use HTML 5 with Internet Explorer
HTML 5 has emerged as the newest standard for coding websites. The improvements and additions to the language make it a lot more functional, so content rich websites will be much easier to access and index in the future.

As many of you know, using anything new as far as HTML and CSS goes is prone to make trouble with any one or all of the various versions of Internet Explorer. HTML 5 is, of course, no exception.

It seems that the new HTML 5 elements won’t work on anything less than Internet Explorer 9. This is because none of those elements exist in Internet Explorer’s Document Object Model (DOM).

Twitter bans users without notice

We are not used to being noobies anywhere on the web, but after starting our Twitter account we found we had a lot to learn.

We signed up and logged into our new Twitter account and wanted to test our blog’s Retweet counters. Unfortunately we were unaware of the rules on Twitter, our testing posts must have been considered spam since our account was banned by Twitter.

There was no notice from Twitter via email or on our Twitter home page or anywhere as far as we could see. We assumed since the counts on our retweet buttons where not increasing our counters where broken. Not thinking for a minute it was Twiiter’s fault, we reinstalled the Worpress retweet plugin, and even tried swapping the retweet plugin out with other plugins that do the same thing. All to no avail, the counts remain at zero no matter how many times we tweeted. Our tweets seemed to be working and were being shown on our Twitter home page.
