IE: Sucking Hard Since Version 5

This code (extracted from a javascript file) works in every major browser except IE (including IE8): $(‘a[rel*=fancybox]’).fancybox({ ‘frameWidth’ : 500, ‘frameHeight’ : 465, ‘hideOnContentClick’ : false, ‘centerOnScroll’ : true, }); This is the fix: $(‘a[rel*=fancybox]’).fancybox({ ‘frameWidth’ : 500, ‘frameHeight’ : 465, ‘hideOnContentClick’ : false, ‘centerOnScroll’ : true }); See the

Camino 1.5 Released!

Many of you know that my browser of choice on OS X is Camino. Camino is the Gecko rendering engine (the same base as Firefox, Seamonkey, and others) aqua-fied to run as a antive Mac app. While Firefox runs well on Mac, it still uses XUL to draw its widgets,

It’s not constructive to constantly rant with no action. So rather than just bitch and moan, I decided to give the Firefox devs the benefit of the doubt and move my complaints to their USENET group as requested. Here’s the thread. I got a fairly nice response from one of
