I was thinking today, that maybe Microsoft would listen to me if I wrote a letter. So I tried it:
How can I put this nicely? I hate you, politely. Every formatting change that works in Mozilla Firefox 220.127.116.11 somehow changes in IE. Grow up, stop ignoring every style you see that includes the words "margin" and "padding." Stop forcing me to turn to Position Is Everything and looking up how to avoid your bugging out of my code. And most of all, load faster. Don't make me refresh every time that you screw up an element slightly and fix it the next time around. If I could maintain more than one stylesheet, and have one attached only to you, it would be on fire.
Not sure if it worked, because after about an hour or two of tweaking what I thought was the perfect version of my site, I could see everything until my picture on "fear." Scrolling down a decent bit, I saw that the entries were apparently too wide for IE, but just the right size for Mozilla. So I took it down a notch — a notch being 20 pixels. Then, things started to look decent again, for the moment. Then, it occurred again on the comments page.
IE, I hate you, I hate you, I hate you. Just trying to make my site look decent in you means going back to my CSS and searching. It doesn't help that Movable Type's CSS has some very messy organization. Once you find most of the major things, you're okay. But does each module really need its own styling? There's absolutely nothing different about them. It's text on a background. Oh my!
And for the moment, my "Subscribe to my feed" link is gone, until I care. Or until IE stops being a total tard. Sometimes, I really can't wait for the next IE to come out of Beta and do something that's actually good. But then I realize, I'll still be dealing with IE, and at that rate, plucking out all my hair over it for the next thirty millenia.
