Surprising

Admittedly, despite my intentions to redesign this site it has fallen by the wayside somewhat. Up until tonight I’d only tested in Camino 0.7, Safari Beta 2 and Internet Explorer (Mac) 5.2.2 which isn’t what anyone would call “comprehensive”.

As is always the case in the wee, wee hours of the morn: Garth is asleep. This means I have no access to my PC and thus no access to IE6/Win. I know from experience that Netscape and Mozilla for Windows will be fine, and so will Opera 7 for Windows. Fiona tells me that the page looks like ass in IE5/Win, and quite honestly it doesn’t look so hot in IE for Mac, but most surprising is the fact that it looks perfectly normal in Opera 6 for Mac.

Opera is a browser I’ve never liked. Until version 7 (for Windows, since such a version is currently nonexistent for Mac) it mangled every page I’ve ever coded. The fact that it renders this iteration of decaffeinated.org properly is somewhat… intriguing. I’m not complaining, it’s quite a pleasant feeling, it’s just unusual for me. Omniweb 4.2 and iCab 2.9 absolutely destroy this page, but that’s to be expected. Future versions of Omniweb are on the way and boast the KHTML rendering library at their core — something that can only be good for us code–bunnies. iCab? Who can tell?
