Not really. What browser are you using and which version is it? Funny how most websites look funky on IE (Internet Explorer), particularly the older versions i.e. IE 6, 7 and 8, yet everything looks fine on other browsers. Keeping it simple, the look and formatting of your website is contained in a CSS file (cascading style sheets). Problems occur when some browsers interpret the CSS differently. This has been and still is a challenge for web designers. Unfortunately, IE holds over 40% of the web browser usage share worldwide so we have to deal with it.
Part of our website launch process includes cross-browser compatibility checks, and we do our very best to get rid of the inconsistencies. Occasionally there may remain tiny irregularities, but the essential elements of the site are not compromised.
Technology moves very fast and so are the standards for web design. Ideally, sites must look pixel prefect on the newest browsers although we remain perceptive that there are still people using the older versions of these internet browsers.
For our clients and internet users alike – staying up to date as far as the operating system and web browser is always beneficial. Not only do we get more security while surfing the web but it substantially adds to positive user experience. If you are curious how your site looks like when viewed on other browsers, you may install other browsers on your computer or try some online tools like Browser Shots and Browsrcamp. You’ll be able to get a feel of how web designers and developers diagnose most site flaws.
Anyway, we try to get this covered as much as we can so our clients don’t have to worry about it and we are constantly working out solutions to combat issues such as this. Your Design Online goes all-out to deliver quality websites at all times.
