The Firefox Revolution

Holy lord. I just viewed this blog in Internet Explorer and I am horrified. Apologies if you view it in IE. I switched recently to Firefox (at the behest of Chad and iGIF, among others) and it looks fantastic – clean, easy to read. IE is a nightmare – big font, weird picture & video placement – AHHH! I would never voluntarily make my site look like that, as if it had been hacked by a seventh-grader who had drank too many Mountain Dews.

So consider switching. It’s free, and from the hushed tones of those who speak of it, it is vastly better in terms of virus protection and security and stuff. Plus it looks good, which, as we all know, is clearly most important in life.


  • honestly Heather;
    when a site as priceless as this is around, it’s not the looks it’s the content.
    BTW it looks mighty fine on IE

  • I agree. I prefere Firefox too, but I just took a look in IE, and it looked exactly the same to me.

  • It looks great! But you might want to delete the extra posts. :)

  • All those extra posts.
    So you were hacked by a 7th grader huh.

  • Hey Heather,
    I love this blog, but something is seriously wrong with your new set up: it freezes for no reason, is slow as molasses in winter, and there’s a zillion firefox revolution duplicate posts!
    Hope you can get it fixed soon :>
    p.s. my computer’s fine everywhere else.

  • I only use Firefox!

  • It looked just fine for me until a few days ago; presumably about the same time you started using firefox. I like my Avant browser (based on IE, but with much more functionality)

  • Yeah, FF is perfect..

    Let me know when the famed XPCOM:EVENT RECEIVER starts kicking in, and your computer won’t shut down. Hmm, maybe a good thing, not sure.

    Flipping nightmare with latest Fire Fox. Loads pages like mud. I hate them all.

  • woo-hoo! you joined the cool club! :)

  • I also have the XPCOM:EVENT RECEIVER problem where it won’t end program automatically, so I have to click on “end now” — minor inconvenience compared to the benefits of FF. Good luck on your blog site — it looks great. I’m anonymous only because I haven’t taken the time to sign up yet.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
