Safari vs Firefox
See the differences in these two screen grabs?
On the left is the way this part of my sidebar appears to me when viewed on my beloved Mac using Mac's Safari browser. Note the lovely rounded drop-down menu buttons and the yellow banner underneath, which is like a ticker tape than runs from right to left with clickable text. All very snazzy, I thought, in my "I'm struggling to get my head around a bit of html every now and again" naivety.
The pic on the right is how the same bit of my sidebar looks when using the current people's darling Firefox, again on my Mac. Gone are the lovely rounded buttons, to be replaced with godawful square things that look like they've come straight off a ZX81. And the ticker tape? Yep, that's gone, too. Instead there is just a thick yellow line.
And there was I thinking we all had the same online experience, and that my splendid buttons looked equally dashing to you guys, too.
So, a teeny survey of my readers: What does it look like when you view it? Like one of these, or different again -- in IE, for example. (When I view my page in IE, all the posts are centred on the page, and the sidebar stuff is all at the bottom of the page, so I don't know what the fuck's going on there?) I look forward to hearing...
