Since HTML5 coding standard has now officially start in October. I'm attempting to correct all coding errors I can so all future browsers and devices so there is less problems. But in some of my digging of Internet standards and compliance I found the Internet Explorer is one of the lowest scored browsers out of all. Firefox which I'm using is middle ground for the most part.

Looks to me I might try Chrome for while.

just remember the back end of chrome talks to google of your every move.

the big browsers use webkit. just there own variation there of. i'll stick with firefox for the add ons.

chrome does have some nice integration to Google aps, gmail, drive, docs and what not. but i don't like most of those services.

Ha, Opera is right up there in the scores.  Chrome is fine but I find it screwing up sometimes over weird crap.  I hate firefox.  They say hate is a strong word but it doesn't even come close to strong enough.  I absolutely can't stand it.  Everything is an add on pop up, things still aren't compatible half the time, the html5 test shows it clear as day as being behind the times.  I don't even care if its behind the times, it just sucks, the layout, everything.  I prefer IE over it, and I hate IE.  

 

I have gone away from Opera at least 20 times, thinking firefox must be the best, or chrome, or whatever the majority of the world seems to think is best.  But I go crying back to opera every time.  The mouse gestures are to die for.  No pop ups, no BS notifications, just pure romance.  

 

As for you Mike.....I have mentioned this before.  Upgrading isn't always best.  As you saw with IE, it isn't even compatible with a lot of it, and you know 70% of people are probably using IE.  So you can update the site and this and that until only 10% of people can use it, or you can keep current with what actually is current, being what is most used currently..  Just like any mechanic will gladly work on a 12V, how many are left when you put a 6.7 in front of their face..  This being a forum for pure exposure, you would want to stick with a format that get's the most use, not one that only caters to specialists, as in those with the latest and greatest technology.  I know you are looking at this with a 10 year old computer yourself.  Don't get so caught up that you cause more problems than they are worth, everything is backwards compatible...nothing is forwards compatible.

Computers aren't the only thing I got to consider now. How about mobile devices? How about tablets?

 

Also FireFox Linux is way different than FireFox Windows. Way different mannerisms and way less popups and security issues. On my main machine I do have Windows 7 in a VirtualBox so I can even test IE browsers too.

 

Chrome isn't bad on Linux but rather strange yet because all the controls are hidden.

 

Opera work fine on Linux too but really similar to Firefox in some ways.

 

49% are mobile devices

9% are tablets

41% are desktops

 

35% are Chrome

30% are Safari

14% are IE

10% are FireFox

7% Android

 

0.32% use Opera.

What I'm after is clearing up any compatibility issues with HTML5 right now we have about 30 errors on the site because there is 27 items of XHTML code in the software. Mostly obsolete use of xhtml commands usage and a few odd ball things. Most of it can be looked up on W3C sites and make corrections.

That was the problem with vBulletin 4 it wasn't forward compatible. This why the site moved from vBulletin 4.2.0 to Invision Power Board 3.4.7. The post software couldn’t work with anything newer than IE8. All future version didn't function properly. This is also why I have most of all the major browsers handy to double check to be sure everything works. Even got a virtualbox of Android to even test mobile devices. The only problem is the screen isn't the correct size. It tends to load up like a tablet.

Just a plain and simple text editor. In Ubuntu I've got Bluefish and a few other programs. But I've gotten so use to doing by hand I don't need any fancy software. Like most edits are either done through FileZilla (FTP Client) which will download and open with my choice of text editor which I've got Leafpad.
