I started implementing a somewhat primitive browser dependency check on ANN. Right now, users of MSIE5 or better should experience better loading times in the "News" and "Unmoderated" categories, since I'm favouring CSS2 over nested tables for layouting. In the Unmoderated section, this reduces HTML loading time by about 10%, or 2.5k. If feedback is positive, I will complete the MSIE part as well as catering specifically for other browsers, since it is obviously impossible to write just one type of code that works best on all browsers.

In unrelated news, the Unmoderated section was once again victim of a number of submitted news items containing nothing but insults and untrue allegations. Since these were all coming from two specific IP addresses, I have blocked posting privileges for them.

Just noticed a small bug when going to the unmoderated section using ie5.5
The box lengths are a little screwy - a screen grab of the problem is at http://ids.org.au/jadamcze/ann_bug.jpg
It is faster though :)

I'm using MSIE only when at work. At home I'm using AWeb 3.4.
Here, at work, I have a fast connection, and absolutely don't care about 2.5kB less or more of HTML. This is the connection time that matters, not the download time.

I have the same problem with IE that was described some posts before.

I'm using IE 5.5 here on a 56k modem, seems faster and look just fine!

AWeb is having an error with nedstatbasic(). A bit annoying for an Amiga site ...

From the site
"Before you read these stats, its very important that you know where these numbers came from. First things first, this is a representation of browser usage for people who visit BrowserWatch, nothing more, nothing less."
All this proves is that more people visit the site with IE than they do any other browser. Was this the point you were trying to make?

Hi, I think that as well as blocking posts from offensive IPs, you should also put said IP addresses up on the site for "target practice" :)
