That’s Weird!

I’ve been messing with my blog most of the day trying to get my menu bar to look, act, work the way I want it to. I’m trying to get the blog to load a little faster. It’s image heavy so I thought I would do away with the images and use text for my menu bar. I redid it about a hundred times and I’m still not satisfied. I am going to live with it for now though. Basically the only thing I have left to figure out is how to make the background color change on hover. I’ll get it eventually :)

I found something strange today! I went to IE to check and make sure the menu bar was centered the way it is in Firefox, in IE my blog images/text/links all appear darker! Is this just me? Or is it the browsers? Now I’m wondering just what everyone sees when they visit! I kind of like the way it looks in IE, it looks crisper! Just so you can see what I’m talking about here are the screenshots.

Mozilla Firefox 3.5.2

Internet Explorer 8.0.6

I need to know! What do you see?

  1. Not sure what you mean..
    the navi bar when you hover changes from white to blue.

    The colors are perfect. I say that because on some Blogs they are awful and I gave a hard time even reading the print!
    LOOKS Beautiful!
    Good work!

  2. I use Google Chrome and the top menu bar is centered. I opened both your screen caps and compared the two Google Chrome is more like the IE capture, the hen in the banner is dark like your IE screen cap.

    Hope that helps!

    the colors are a little different but both look great.

  4. I use IE and it is a little darker, but I think it makes the details a little more defined.

    Looks good! Heather G.
