What browser do you devs use?

Post by trenzterra »

Just wondering what browsers you phpBB developers use for previewing the templates and stuff in phpBB. Because not everything is cross-compatible right now, it seems, but of course, I don't blame anyone for this except myself, because it's not even in Beta. Just curious!

I guess since they are developers the probebly takes the diskspace to install a couple of diffrent browsers and loking it up in the all, and I have tested it in lynx witout any problemes, why not becurse php sends a html file to the browser and evry browser supports HTML and displays it in a fairly similar way.
Get Firefox and install the BBcode extension; then you are a real forum power user!

Almost true.

But it also bepends on if the HTML is currect or not and if you brower support the standard that is used. phpBB2.2 uses XHTML, will not new a few browers don't support it currectly.

Note also that the template used here are not finished so the may have some problems.

I use Firefox and it look fine.

Good reason to load a million browsers, is that it wont cost you a buck a url... Thats complete asinine.

I don't know if you noticed it, but the left bar just doesn't look right. It's like everything is squeezed together. So I'm guessing they use IE to code? It looks much better in it.

Of course not. More and more users are using other browsers these days. Number of users using IE is much less than 90%, and especially if forum is related to coding.

Sometime even below the magic 50% mark...
