    i suggest pulling out a copy of Firefox and looking at your site -- scroll to the bottom much?

    Too many ads, small orange text in the sidebar thats not at the bottom of the page is too small for the color and background, cheesy counter, and youre running a version of WP thats exploitable.

    never once have i heard anyone that said that firefox works better than i.e. everyone i ask why do they like ff better always says its beocuse its open source and you can customize it, sorry i would rather use something that works with everything than be able to make it pretty. The only thing i agree that i.e canf do that ff can is css2 wich im sure wont be the truth for much longer. and if a hacker is going to waste his or her time hacking into my site lol they just proving how stupid they are and how much they need a lif. there is nothing on the site worth a darn thing to a hacker. and for your information every version of wp isnt that safe.

    Do they teach punctuation in Georgia schools?

    You want the real truth? Your site looks like crap in IE too. It reminds me of a 1996 Tripod site -- the only things missing are an animated mailbox and a couple of these.

    I guess its okay to hate FF, but i cant comment on your site, when you dont care about it.

    being that wordpress is open-source and customizable, it's kind of ironic that you knock firefox for being the same way.

    that being said, you really can't alienate that big enough part of your reader base. if you told me the site didn't load in opera, i'd say no big deal.

    but firefox market share, as of January 2008, was about 16%. that's not a huge %, but as far as i'm concerned that's very significant if you're not only trying to build a quality site, but also trying to monetize it. of interest was that in 2007 firefox had about a 14% market share, so while it's slowly growing, it's growing. maybe by next year it will be closer to 20%.

    on my site, i wouldnt want to blow off 15-20% of my potential users if i could help it.

    best of luck with your site.

    Personally, Firefox is the only browser that will work on my computer, IE has a really nasty tendency to lock up, so I'll say that IE doesn't work.

    Furthermore, you're doing yourself a disservice since a vast majority of the blogging community uses Firefox over IE. It's sort of a myopic view to take -- refusing to make content accessible to the largest population...

    just becouse the market share is 16% doesnt mean 16% of my viewers use it. and its not that i think ff is bad beocus eits open source its just that 95% of the people that use it when you ask them why they use it they say becouse its open source. i would prefer to use a browser that works better it dont matter if its open source to me or not. And its a fact that more of the time ie does work better at viewing pages. yes i agree you can make ff pretter lol but i want what works. and its hard to make somehitng work right when half of ff users say it looks good and the other half say it doesnt. nither of you have told me what doesnt show up right. how can i fix it if i dont know?

    You are totally wrong here. It's a fact that IE does not follow standards. If it looks good in IE but not FF, you are not following the standards either, and are making a lot of errors in your HTML.

    IE6 had many many errors. IE7 had errors, but not many. IE8 which is out in beta now, is a lot better and allmost follow the standards. This means that your site will look awfull in IE8 when it comes out.

    if it wassnt for ie there wouldnt be any standards. If ff is sp perfect then why 6 years are they only at 16% of the market. The fact is that ie is the standard. and people allway fuss about ie and its errors but ff as just as just as many. and yet you just like everyone else has failed to tell me what isnt showing right in ff. and there isnt errors in my html. just becouse ff cant show it dont mean its wrong. its liek the fact that ie-7 doesnt support css2, so if i have a page in css2 and it dont work in ie-7 does that mean that my css2 is wrong, no.

    Once you fix the errors, so that the relic of a site can be validated, you have 397 other validation errors.

    If you desire proof of that, Ive fixed the errors (your usage of the trademark symbol incorrectly) that prevent validation and raw the html is here:

    The fact is your site is poorly put together, and your posts are trollish.

    I originally thought I was being harsh on you with the Tripod comments but having looked at your source, I dont feel any bad longer.

    It actually looks like a tripod site put together by a 15 year old.

    Are you no longer a moderator whooami? Whether you are or not you guys tend to be pretty harsh. It's discouraging and quite frankly I'm tired of it. You guys need to go through a customer service course for the sake of WordPress.

    The site description text in your header is illegible do to it's color.

    The side bar looks like this:

    I never was a moderator, and if I were, my response would be no different.

    Although, I do find my last post to be rather funny given that I remarked on the OPs posts -- leave it to me to make enough typos that I question whether or not I learned English in High School.

    Thats what I get for replying without having had any caffiene.

    the first thing i think when i see that many ads is whether or not visiting the site will come back to haunt me.

    i sure do miss those animated borders and gifs.

    im sorry but if you have to go picking at things as stupid as the counter then your just wanting somehitng to fuss about. im sorry when i go to a blog i look at the content on that blog not all the other crap. i agree i had to many ads but thats changed now and the site now looks like this http://blog.jericosystems.com whooami as a crapy attitude and im sorry but his site just doesnt look all that great either. who cares if it will validate when it looks like crap. and about 95% of the ff users on my site say it looks just fine so when someone who just dont like me says it dont look good i just dont listen. if your going to view the site and you have a comment or sujestion please give it in a helpfull way and not just be like whooami.

    omg you are full of yourself. ray charles could have done the same thing you did. i mean god even all the crap you have givin me on this post i havent yet sat here and said my site was good not once, just shows that you really do have an attitude problem. the people that think there sites are just so awsome are mostly the ones that have the sites that are just blaa. for real you need to wake up and get out of your own A**

    You want a browser that works well?

    Take your beloved IE on over to the Acid Test.

    Compare the results you get with IE, Firefox, Opera, and Safari. Only one of those four will fail miserably.

    i hate firefox and honestly dont care if it cant view the site very well. it looks great in i.e so im ok with it lol.

    This is the exact reason so many pages only work in IE: Because the authors of those pages have written bad code SPECIFICALLY to function in IE and which subsequently and appropriately malfunctions in other, standards compliant, browsers.

    Let's also keep these market share numbers in perspective. IE comes installed on EVERY Windows machine in existence. Safari comes installed on EVERY Mac out there (OSX).

    Firefox and Opera are download by interested parties only (though many Linux distrubutions may include Firefox). Even the Windows version of Safari is now a cleverly manipulated forced download (here I grumble).

    So, the market shares that Opera and Firefox have staked out for themselves are much more impressive than you have given them credit.

    just becouse a web design makes a page to work in ie only dont make it "bad" code. and it dont matter what the reason is that more people use ie then firfox, the point is they do

    Sure, more people use ie than firefox, but your target market are tech people and programmers. Tech people and programmers are more likely to favor Firefox. But if you're marketing to Mary Sue, the homemaker, who barely knows how to boot her PC, then you should be fine.

    Good luck. Nice blog. :-)

    Just throwing my two cents in here - first I didn't see the begining iteration of your site, but I do find the new version? not bad.

    i hate firefox and honestly dont care if it cant view the site very well. it looks great in i.e so im ok with it lol. if everyone would use a browser that worked we would all be better off.

    It doesnt matter if you dislike it, the thing is you have to look at what a good web developer does, he validates that it works in IE, Firefox, Opera, Safari etc. Wouldn't you like to attract Mac users to your site? Here is the main question though - what is your demograpihc? Age group? Type of user? All of these factor into who you should design for. For instance - if I was designing a site for linux users I'd be damn sure it worked in Firefox or some Mozilla derivative and if it didn't work fully in IE I'd be ok with it because my demographic did not utilize IE.

    Now are you trying to attract gamers? It is a given that Gamers are going to use Windows Machines and IE is installed but also many Hardcore Gamers in the US dislike IE and stick to Firefox.

    im sorry but if you have to go picking at things as stupid as the counter then your just wanting somehitng to fuss about. im sorry when i go to a blog i look at the content on that blog not all the other crap.

    You also need to look at some of the studies that show how people view websites, how long they stay at the website and what pieces of the site draws there eyes to certain parts of the content. Content may be great but if the site does a poor job of directing the viewers eye to the content then you have not done your job.

    Who cares what you look at when you blog - you don't care about the other crap and only look for content but what about the people that are actually looking at your site? What do they care about? Are you designing the site for you or for readers?

    You need to take all of the comments on this site in stride, some may be negative but you asked for comments or questions and then decided to go against the grain when you tell web developers and people who do this for a living that not coding for Firefox is irrelevant because it is and people who know what they are doing will give you the same reaction again and again. So next time you ask for input try not to be so negative on suggestions and hopefully - others will treat you with the same respect.
