Fuck IE

I just finished playing with the template for the blog. You'll notice that there's a little Google ad up in the corner. Yes, I'm a blogwhore. I actually added the Google AdSense thing a few days ago, but it wasn't visible from the top of the page, so I adjusted it this evening.

It really only took me about 20 minutes to get the layout to work right. Then it took me another freaking hour to get the layout to not look like crap in IE. Firefox can handle the CSS just fine. IE? Crap-o-rific. But that's what you get when Microsoft is the primary, the dominant, the monopolistic player in the market. So all I can say is:

Get Firefox!

Seriously, use it.

Being in school for web design, I run into the same thing all the time. Thankfully, my teacher last semester used Firefox to grade our assignments, since it actually handled CSS correctly, as opposed to how finicky IE can be. Still, having to basically write a page twice to get it to conform to a different browser is bullshit, especially when there are supposed standards.
I have used Firefox almost exclusively for 2 or 3 years now (I think) and wouldn't go back if Microsoft paid me. :)
