IE6
« on: June 10, 2009, 08:32:30 AM »
Hey, IE6 is all we have at work, and everything works pretty well on it but not everything ... for one the slightly lighter colored post boxes are much lighter, making the text hard to read. It's still completely usable, but would be appreciated not burning my eyes out :)

I dont use IE anymore.

I prefer Opera or more recently Songbird (music player intergrated into a webbrowser build on the firefox engine)

not related ... but since we are talking about web browsers
anybody can give me a recommendation of a browser for mac OS9 ?

ie sucks (yeah yeah) but the only other alternative i found is iCab (which is not only shareware but also not optimal)

and i know .. mac os9 is ancient but i got the imac for free

I was really hoping to avoid the wolves ... but ie6 is the only browser installed at work, and getting firefox portable isn't worth it IMO

Really? That's strange.. I completely changed the setup of it. It's still the same grey? Have you cleared your cache?

Yeah, I cleared the cache .... but it doesn't matter because gmail is wayyy too freaking slow in IE that I just gave up and started using firefox portable ... hopefully the sysadmin doesn't notice :D

Yes, there was a blank PNG but I commented it out. Shouldn't be there anymore.
