Webdesign.... The truth





  • making a program (or website) work on whatever platform you are running is commonly where the most time is spent. 



  • Ha ha, this is so much like my average day at work, it's almost scary. If anybody needs me, I'll be working on that orange slice, with a touch of red slice. Cyan slice is a given, but they left out "weeping in despair", so I'll have to repurpose a little of cyan for that.

    Uh, no, making a program work is commonly where the most time is spent, having to hack it for a single frigging retarded shitty platform is not where most of your time should commonly be spent.

    The point of this graphic is that the other parts of the graph are all that's needed to make the website work in pretty much every other browser.



  • hmmm... Actually I just thought it was funny.

    I agree on that. Only IE is still (by far) the most used browser, so on that point I have to agree with tster's first post.



  • Pffffffft. I don't know about all that fancy schamcy testing this,
    making that work, making this work nonsense. If they don't use the same
    brand/version of web browser as you, they deserve whatever happens to
    them.



    That's not being lazy or dismissive, that's maximing your percentage of
    time working on REAL work! Why only spend a thin slice of the time pie
    on being productive when you can use the whole pie?!?



    In my day, users had to use web apps by printing the HTML off (browsers
    hadn't been invented. Why they invented HTML before then I don't know,
    though), reading it, filling the details out on the back of a postcard,
    and sending it in. And they were glad for it!

    Damn straight!
