Web Constructions has changed its name to Prorarity™! It’s been a big switch, but the whole site, logo, and name is officially changed. ‘Prorarity’ actually comes from the word ‘rarity’, which means something that is rare, special, or unique. ‘Pro’ originally comes from the latin root which means forward and forth. The common understanding of the term ‘pro’, however, is merely something which is professional. I combined the two words to make ‘prorarity’, which in a sense means professionally rare, special and unique.
The most popular browser today is Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (according to most sources). It’s been this way for just about as long as anyone can remember. Why, then, do so many developers and users strongly dislike it? Well, there are many reasons for this, and hopefully we can explore a few of them.
Developers don’t like Internet Explorer mostly because of its lack of innovation. Even its latest version (version 9) is well behind in modern HTML standards and support. All other major browsers have fully adopted HTML5 and CSS3. This means they support the very latest. Internet Explorer, however, lacks many key features of modern HTML and CSS. Things like imageless shadows, gradients, 3D effects, and transitions are void in even the latest Internet Explorer version.
What does all that mean for the normal, everyday web surfer? It means you experience a slower and uglier web. In order to have the effects mentioned above in Internet Explorer, developers must use images and/or flash. This can compromise quality, but also significantly slow down the load time of each web page.
As if this isn’t enough, Internet Explorer has a host of other problems. Computer experts say there are many security issues with Internet Explorer that are just not present in other browsers. Compatibility is another problem with Internet Explorer. The last supported Internet Explorer version on Windows XP and below is version 8, and that version is even farther behind competing browsers. Many of the major browsers today are truly cross-platform, which means they run on any computer.
If all of this has finally convinced you to get rid of Microsoft’s default browser, then one question must be asked. What browser should I use? The most innovative browsers today are Google Chrome and Apple Safari. Since Safari won’t run as well on a Windows system, Chrome is an excellent choice. If you do use a Mac, Safari or Chrome will work equally well. Both Mozilla Firefox and Opera are also good choices for a modern web browser.
Many people do not realize that different web browsers won’t always read web pages the same way. What do I mean by this? Well, there are many different web browsers out there. When looking at the same web page on two browsers, you will hardly ever see the exact same thing. Go ahead and try looking at a site in two different browsers, you will see what I mean. Generally, a website with more content is more likely to have browser differences. On top of that, there are many differences in websites between browser versions as well! This obviously poses a very serious problem for website/blog owners. It means you must stay on top of browsers, and make sure your site looks good in every one, which is no easy task to say the least!
BrowserShots is an online tool that gives you screenshots of your site in many different web browsers. I have found this site to be very helpful for checking website compatibility.
But even so, this remains a very frustrating problem for website owners. That’s why I’ll test your website in many different browsers when building it. This ensures maximum compatibility of browsers, so everybody can see your site! Contact me if you’re interested, my email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
