Web Design for Browsers

(Or; "We want the site to be viewed equally and perfectly --- in
all browsers.")

Equal design for all browsers is not always financially wise or feasible.Well.... Not so fast. Unless your budget can absorb over 450 different versions of your new website, and we use javascript browser detection technology. And this assumes that the user has javascript enabled on their browsers, of course. Unless we build your site as a set of graphics, which would destroy your search engine optimization goals.


  • "First, there are the discontinued browsers."
  • "Oh, stop being difficult! Just the current browsers and those released in the last two years."

This is a partial current list for developed for Windows. There’s another series built for Unix, then for MAC.Then, there are versions and releases for each, then the OS versions themselves. Each can render CSS, HTML, colors and supported text characters differently. Throw in the users’ monitor, settings, age, technology build (CRT, LCD, LED).

Again, what’s the budget? We can nail this down for EVERY one of the browsers, on one site. Simple javascript to ID the browser, then off to the corresponding browser site and browser version. Figure three versions, so only 150 to 200 sites need to be built. If the assumption is 5 pages each for each site; maybe 300, 500 man hours to build them out and verify via online services. And this is for for just the Windows platform!

Then, of course, the user settings. "I like my screen bright", "I like mine darker". Won't look exactly like the beta.
