  • I’m really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

  • Hello CO. It depends on what version of IE your users are browsing with. Many of the modern CSS standards and functions are not supporter by IE browsers 8 and older (usually). IE is dead all in all, and is now focused as Microsoft Edge which does work well with todays web design standards.

    Regards,
    Jake.
