New look - comparing browsers (IE & Chrome)

iowagirl2006February 11, 2013

Some of you have noted the center justification of the posts with the change in the "look" of GardenWeb.

This appears to just affect Internet Explorer. Here is a screen shot of IE and Chrome, using the same thread:

You do not get the center justification with Chrome (or Firefox). I highly recommend switching, if you haven't already. They both great browsers, and easy to use. You can import all your bookmarks from IE.

Notice the lack of ads! NO ADS! Install the AdBlock Plus extension, and you will not have to deal with all those ads. Plus - both Chrome and Firefox load so much faster! Did I say NO ADS! LOL :)

You can still keep IE. I use all three browsers. You don't need to delete anything to use it.

Firefox works fine also with a 130% zoom on my pc.

With Chrome the Ctrl and + or - buttons enlarge or shrink the font.

Great example of the number of ads that appear with out using a browser that has ad block plus.
Firefox with ad block plus and easylist is what I use and never see an ad. LOVE IT.
Lindakathy I have mine mega zoomed too, have to with my visual problems, but that should not have to be done on a well designed website.

It appears not to be formatted for a wide screen monitor.

I have a 19" monitor, am using IE 8, no ad blocker. I don't see any ads, and the posts are all left-hand justified.
