Internet Explorer Problem
Your better of creating a .png gradient background for it to display properly in all browsers. The one you have on your site its diagonal, you’ll probably be better up creating a full background with no repeat, unless you want a vertical or horizontal gradient which can be done with 1px width and repeated X, or Y.
Other wise you’ll have to face the fact that your site won’t look the same or close with IE in mind. Also don’t forget there’s more users using Safari according to my Google analytic s due to the increasing amount of iPad users and existing MAC users.
If anything in my club site that I have been running for over 5 years according to Google Analytics these are the most browsers used in order:
Safari -> Internet Explorer -> Chrome -> Firefox -> Android -> Opera -> Blackberry.
It’s not necessarily about making your site look IDENTICAL across browsers. If you have this outcome in mind; you will do nothing but drive yourself MAD.
Instead, we want to make our sites look “Presentable” across browsers. I don’t think you are going to lose tons of traffic because your footer background is blue, instead of gradient blue, for example.
I know it’s not what you want to hear, but it’s the way it is. Taking Tee’s advice from above, you can certainly use a graphic file for backgrounds… but the downside is it will increase your page loading time.
Sooo, it’s a love/hate kind of relationship.
