on reddit today...
That's beautiful Rudy, one the image, and two that you go on reddit .
Does anything work in Internet Explorer? lol
Needlessly KIND to HTML 5.
Thermite works very well for Internet Explorer...
So trusting. It's kinda sweet.I stick to chrome, Google account integration as well as a few other things that are cool. So no matter where I am I have all my stuff just there.
Always have a local backup of everything important to you. Then make backups of that backup. And be cool when the US gov't tells Google to give them all your information. And be okay with the server holding your information being shut down by the FBI because someone else using a Google service on that server has something with supposed copyright infringement.
When I use Chrome it tells me, in the upper righthand corner, that I'm "missing out" on something because I'm not signed into Google Chrome. Lawlz if I ever log into a browser hooked up to a large corporation with known privacy issues.
The message in that graphic doesn't seem to bear too much questioning. I mean, what browser does support HTML5? (None that I know of.) So is the implication that CSS is also involved here? If so, then plenty of non-HTML5 sites don't work in IE.
But maybe I'm thinking too much. (I certainly have a lean and hungry look ...)
it was not in regard to html5 per se, more in response to post #4
my assumption is that most people will want to make sure that a substantial portion of their web site's visitors are not shafted by b0rken pages
so you make it work in IE, full stop
[semi-offtopic] my original post, with the picture, was actually added to an older thread, but a moderator split it off into this (new) thread... and i did not assign this thread's title... so i'm wondering if another kind moderator would please fix the spelling error, as it appears that i did it, and i'm pretty careful about spelling errors
Done! (Well, fixed some punctuation, anyhow. I'm not very good at spelling, but I don't think I've missed anything there.)so I'm wondering if another kind moderator would please fix the spelling error
Thermite always does the trick. Otherwise, C4.Originally Posted by Black Max
I was playing along, but ok
Sorry it's hard to tell in an online forum.
That image made my day. IE humor, it's just never ending.
Again, I can't believe ANYONE is DUMB ENOUGH to WANT to use it!!! The handful of 'neat' things it actually offers (the really neat ones having NOTHING to do with markup!) doesn't make up for the trip in the wayback machine with Mr. Peabody on coding practices. Carefully crafted for the people who until recently vomit up HTML 3.2 and slapped a tranny on it, and today just slap 5 lip-service on it -- churning out code WORSE than Frontpage did a decade ago.
Net improvement zero.
But of course, it's "new and shiny" giving book writers excuse to squeeze out another puppy, let professional lecturers fill another hall, and sleazeball scam artists once again practice nube predation using it like another sick buzzword on the people too stupid to know what "web 2.0" REALLY meant.
I don't necessarily mind the idea of a "living" standard, which gradually adds features to HTML. When they are fully supported—and if they don't suck—I might use them. A few little things like the extra form attributes and and maybe associating an image with a caption seem OK to me, but that's about all at the moment.
