Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
I have had probably close to a dozen reports this year from Members having issues with the site - can't see another member's photos, can't see the comment box/button, can't send emails, etc. I have raised a handful of these with Ning, the company that built and maintains the site for us. Every time, without fail, the fix according to Ning is to use a newer browser AND/OR a different (not Internet Explorer) browser.
While the web or Internet's original philosophy was more forgiving as far as which browsers would render pages, there are more and more capabilities being delivered within the browser. This is great for the most part but it is not always great for all browsers unless a lot of care is taken during development and there is extensive cross-browser testing (to make sure the site works well on all browsers). It seems like the broader web site developer community (not just with Ning but in general) has a strong preference for either Firefox or Chrome over say Internet Explorer. Market share stats for browser usage seem to support this as well.
While I know you shouldn't have to switch browsers to use an Internet site and I have nothing personal against IE 6, if you are experiencing weird behavior on the site, you might want to try another browser or upgrade your existing one to a newer version (the latter is smart from a security standpoint). If you should experience an issue in either Firefox or Chrome, please send me details, preferably with a screen shot, and I will send it into Ning.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Good morning. I'm using IE 8 and have no problems.Moving to IE 9 once it's been running a while.
I have just downloaded Google Chrome but have not set it as my default browser.. For the first time in ages I have been able to send a email on here...I am just waiting for the person to let me know if they received it okay. So far so good Gene, will let you know the outcome.
