This theme looks great in Firefox but…

    …in IE, Chrome, and Safari, they fall very short.

    I think I’m going to find an “Optimized for Firefox” button to put on the main page.

    What do you think of the other browsers yourself?

    This post is not very useful at all. It doesn’t help anyone to know what’s the problem with the other browsers at all. “They fall very short” is simply a useless description.

    I have personally tested the theme with IE6, IE7, IE8, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari myself, and they all work well, except for a few minor caveats in IE6, such as the max-width property is not supported, so if you have an image that’s larger than the containing element, it will overflow instead of being resized.

    I’ve spent lots of time making this theme compatible with IE6, and anybody doing web development knows that IE6 is such a pain in the ass. I might drop support for it soon, seeing that it’s market share is less than 7% and continues to decrease.



    Oh I’m not saying there are any compatibility issues at all, it’s just an aesthetic observation (for instance purple backgrounds just look smoother in Firefox than in the other browsers I used to check the theme). But now that you mentioned it, it would be nice for these other browsers to support the rounded corners you have implemented. My post was criticizing these other browsers, not your theme.

    I can actually make the other browsers that don’t support the new CSS3 border-radius property show rounded corners, but that will involve using images, which will just complicate things, especially with the theme using sprite images. I decided that it’s just too much trouble to be worth it.



    There’s just a little fault in your CSS-Syntax you made for the rounded corners. Chrome 6, Safari 5 will also show the rounded corners if you change the following Code in the style.css. Maybe you’ll change it in an later Release so it works in the future.

    Good catch, Winni! I’ve made the fixes and will include it in the next version.
