    What browsers break sitepoint.com?

    I was looking at the sitepoint code and noticed they had a line that was fed to older browsers telling them thier browser would not support the site layout. Anyone have ideas about which browsers this will be told to?

    It's the standard WaSP "Browser Upgrade Initiative" message.

    I don't think so... Netscape 4.8 woorks just fine here - not as pretty as moz, but perfectly functional

    Chimera 0.6 and Safari v.60 on Mac OS X both break the layout, but not too bad. Safari bumps the right hand navbar down the page, about half way down from where it is supposed to be.

    Both browsers don't give you the ability to use the "collapse menu" feature on the left hand navbar.

    That's strange. The "hide navbar" option was there (Chimera December build) before the design tweak, but I just checked and it's gone. Strange, as it was fully functional.

    Did you report the navbar thing to Apple?

    Just did. I am very much looking forward to the new release of Safari in the next week or two. Tabbed browsing, better js support, and a whole host of new updates.

    It's most likely the NS and IE 4 series. The box model had not been implemented in those browsers too well.

    All things considered, I actually think it's rather sexy in ns4.7

    Yep, we went to the trouble of designing a special (although simple) style sheet for Netscape 4. As you can see, it's just enough to make the important bits visible in a reasonable layout.
