Chapter 4. Blazing Browsers: Real World Browser Techniques

Chapter 4. Blazing Browsers: Real World Browser Techniques

We all know what a drag it is to make pages that look good in older browsers like Netscape 4.x. To make your site look the same in older browsers and modern ones, you often must sacrifice the appearance of the site. Bear in mind that it is rare that someone—other than web developers or clients—will see your page in both older and newer browsers. Typically, the general public uses only one browser or another and will never compare a site between browsers. All that really matters is that the site looks acceptable and is fully functional in the browsers of your target audience. Read the last few sentences over and over again until you’ve committed them to memory. You’ll be better for it, and you won’t consider wasting precious time making every last detail the same between browsers.

Everything you’ll find in this chapter relates to browsers in some way, shape, or form. Not only do you learn cool tips for Dreamweaver, but you also learn general browser usage tips that will speed up work-flow and make you a better all-around developer. You’ll get solutions to tough issues specific to certain browsers, fun things you can do for some browsers, and a bunch of ideas you never considered before.
