    Internet Explorer My very first website!

    The Storm - "Buckle your seatbelt, Dorothy..."

    I've been lurking around the net for a while and finally decided to put online everything I've learned so far. Above is my very first site, can someone let me know what they think?It's coded for IE5+/Win only, so please excuse.

    yeah, i've been to your various sites on more than one occasion. the only thing that bothers me, is that you block people with other browsers, from even getting in. that's a pain in the butt. especially since your site works fine in mozilla. other than the browser blocking, the site's really nice

    Slooooooowww load...

    since you seem to be a fellow countryman I don't want to be too harsh, but I detest chromeless windows, the first window after clicking "The Storm" took forever to load, and much of the type (like the links) is very small. I have good eyes, but that gives me a headache... Layout and concept very nice, by the way.
    Regards,

    Block other browsers? In Moz and Opera 7 I get this page:
    http://www.angelfire.com/mo2/cbch21/xBrowser.html
    In Opera 6 I get a blank white page.
    In Netscape 4 I get a black page with an iframe containing Anglefire's 404.
    In IE5 I get more JavaScript errors popping up than I can be bothered to close.
    In Lynx I get in fine after fighting some frames off. Is this a site for text browsers maybe?

    In that case - lose the frames. Not popular among text browser folks.

    Thank you!

    I't not really my first design... it's my second - that's been upgraded for 7 years.

    i would say the only downside (as posted above) is the slow loading through the chromeless.

    Slow loading, huh?

    I'm on a T1, so can't see it (loads in ~10 seconds). What's everyone else on?

    Just wondering...

    Chromeless windows aren't XP friendly are they? I read once on dynamic drive when I was going to use the script they had there for it that it wasn't so I didn't do it.



    [edit: I left the window open and loading while I typed up this post, so when I whent back to look at it I was shocked that it hadn't loaded at all..
    Sorry Quiet Storm but I didn't even look at your page... wouldn't even if it had something I wanted. WAAAY to long a load.

    56k by the way.

    Quiet Storm's a seasoned pro imo

    Very nice page, there seem to be a scripting error, I didn't look for it but otherwise I like it alot.

    Pretty nice but the scrolling area is a bit small. I can deal with it though.

    By the way... take off two hits on your "no war counter" for my visits... as I support the war... but thats a whole other issue.
