Microsoft Internet Explorer
This site has been tested with Internet Explorer (IE) for Windows (4.0, 5.0, 6.0) and Mac (5.0, 5.2) and works perfectly. A workaround is in place to circumvent a major CSS2 implementation bug on all Windows versions (Mac version OK)
We do NOT claim any level of compatibility with Internet Explorer 3.x, or earlier, browsers, since this is incompatible with the W3C recommended practice of using XHTML with CSS.
This site has been tested with Nescape for both Windows (6.2,7.0,7.1) and Macintosh (6.2) and works perfectly. Compatibility with Mozilla, which also uses the Gecko rendering engine, is taken as an indication of likelihood of compatibility with other versions.
We also claim usability, but not perfection, under Netscape 4.x, with the caveat that certain features may be buggy on some sub-versions.
We do NOT claim any level of compatibility with Netscape Navigator 3.x, or earlier, browsers, since this is incompatible with the W3C recommended practice of using XHTML with CSS.
This site has been tested with Mozilla 0.8, 0.9.6, 1.0 and 1.1 for Linux, at different times, and operated perfectly.
This site has been tested with Opera as follows:
- Version 5.0, Linux: Menus descend partially and vanish, workaround devised and implemented. Game of Life (GoL) universe cannot exceed 11x11 cells, suspect buggy DOM implementation, the practical workaround is to show image of GoL instead of the applet.
- Version 5.0, Mac OS 9: Menus descend correctly, but have white bands, still usable. Same Game of Life problem as on Linux, same workaround.
- Version 6.05, Windows: Same menu problem as MacOS, still usable. Same Game of Life problem as Mac OS and Linux, same workaround.
- Version 7.11, Windows: Perfect. GoL is a little slow, but otherwise perfect.
This site has been tested with Lynx, a text-only browser, on Linux and operates well.
This site is largely illegible, by way of fonts being rendered very small, in Konqueror 2.1.1, the KDE Browser, and suffers layout problems in Amaya, the W3C Browser, due to its apparant lack of support for CSS2 absolute positioning.
