firefox advertising

Take a look at http://blog.ebrahim.org/ using Firefox, Mozilla or Opera. Then take a look using IE. Notice any differences? 🙂

    Is there anything inside your head besides Firefox?

  2. Jeff Walden says:

    I might if I were able to use IE right now. As I’m booted in Linux and my Windows install is hosed, I can’t. Care to enlighten those of us who can’t look?

    Wonderful 🙂 Of course, now your stats are going to be all skewed towards IE… 😛

    Brilliant, can you post the source for it.

  5. How come you still show the “small” GetFIREFOX-banner on the left in Firefox??

    Actually, since you’re already targetting Internet Explorer users anyway, it would make more sense to wrap the ‘advertising DIV’ in that conditonal comment:

    That way, user agents that do not support CSS won’t have to put up with it.

  7. Good idea…

    I think I’ll follow your lead. I’ll try to make some time to edit my site later.

    To the anon loser who is posting from Chicago. I blog about things I think will interest other people. What’s the point in writing a blog that has things that nobody cares about? A blog is not a complete person. Anyway, I don’t know why I’m wasting time responding to anonymous flames.

    Jeff, IE users see an extra blog entry urging them to download Firefox.

    dolphinling, not quite sure what you mean by this.

    George, I used conditional comments that only IE picks up on. You can find more info on that here.

    Michael, because while my objective is to get users off IE onto something else, it doesn’t hurt to plug Firefox to other users as well. Besides I set this up only last night, and haven’t really had time to let the design bake yet.

    anonymous, while Ben’s goal is also noble, I don’t want to make my site completely inaccessible to those using IE. It sucks, and is general bad behaviour to do so.

    RafG, thanks. You’re absolutely right, and I don’t know why I didn’t do this to begin with. It’s fixed.

    Robert, cool! 🙂

  9. The first thing I noted was the lack of a ‘minimum font size’ setting in IE: I cannot read your navigation bar.
    Oh my, back to Opera. 🙂
