I was over at anybrowser.com right now to test it. I'd read somewhere quite some time ago that it's a good tool for making sure your web site looks the way you want it to for your visitors.
But then I got there and of course my site is completely messed up in their "browser".
Why? Because they use the HTML 3.2 standard, with additions for bgcolor for tables, td's and one other thing - plus the "face" attribute of the font tag.
Surely the general internet population isn't living in the stone age?! If this really is the case then I hope every site designer out there wakes up one morning and decides to not code in anything lower than the HTML 4 standard, preferably no lower than the XHTML 1 standard.
By continuing to include versions of sites for those with very very old browsers we're doing the internet community a huge disservice. Older browsers are much less secure than newer ones - and the browsers are FREE for pete's sake. If anyone is still using Internet Explorer 4 (or even 5.0 for that matter) then they can blame themselves for not being able to view sites properly.
The age of IE4, IE5 and Netscape 4 and 6 should be over. Those browsers made it extremely difficult to make sites look the same in all browsers. We're still not quite there yet, but at least it doesn't require too much of an effort these days (in most cases). We're getting there - but we WON'T get there if we continue to support legacy systems for a completey unreasonable length of time.
I would understand if upgrading to the latest browser version cost $10 or more per machine - but IT'S FREE...
Feel free to correct me here, but this is how I feel at the moment.
