I was having an issue on my Windows game box with firefox stating it didn't have the latest version of flash installed. It had also been a couple of days since I had last run firefox and I didn't recall having any pages require a java applet loaded the last time (and today it opened the Java web start). I was also having issues with player controls in firefox on a particular site and games were crashing so it was time to reboot my computer. After I logged in up popped a window for flash stating that it was ready to finish installing the latest version of flash.

Nifty little Windows app that will let you resize windows to predefined sizes and/or move windows to predefined locations.

This used to be fairly simple... As long as you had access to a linux box that had KDE's Konqueror installed - Konqueror & Safari both used the KHTMLview rendering library. Then Apple decided to go it's own route & branched away from KHTMLview... so some things worked the same & others didn't. I'm not sure if anybody has a comprehensive list of the differences or if it's even worth it. Apple has named this new rendering library

Or better yet,
McAfee does it again!?
Holy Crap Batman! Apparently, according to McAfee, open source development methods are responsible for helping malware authors create better malware... Therefore, I'm assuming, we should then blame open source for all of our malware? That's like almost like blaming everyone that uses the USA's interstate system (or at least those responsible for it's construction) for drug trafficking... So does that mean we need to charge Hitler with drug trafficking?

One of the biggest issues for web designers is having to deal with multiple browsers, the worste of course being IE. One of the biggest problems with IE is the fact that there are lots of people still using the version that came with their computer & they've never bothered to upgrade! This could mean that some people are running IE 3, but I think the percentage of people actually using IE 3 is not worth worrying about.
Most standards based designers would prefer to be able to toss IE requirements out the window. Unfortunately IE still holds a major share & so most projects require IE compatibility of some sort. Be glad if your requirements only require IE6 .
Considering past projects I've worked on & reading about projects others have worked on I've come to the conclusion that there's 5 "versions" of IE that designers can lump stuff into - pre 5.01, 5.01, 5.5, 6, & 7 (currently only beta is available). Most people don't even bother with pre 5.01 except to make sure that it's readable (a text browser should work just fine). Trying to test a website with multiple versions of IE causes problems because windows only lets you install 1 version. Before somebody figured out how to install multiple versions on the same computer you had to have multiple physical computers - each with it's own different version of IE installed .
