Microsoft Bids Goodbye To IE6, Celebrates with Cake

Even Microsoft admits how bad IE6 was. Frankly, they should do the same to versions 7 and 8.

Why is IE6, 7, and 8 bad? Web developers are usually tasked to make sure that website designs and layouts look the same on all browsers. That be easy if all browsers follow rules set by the W3C. All browsers did well, except for IE. What would look the same on Firefox and Chrome would be broken on IE.

The Acid3 test was made to test a browser's compliance with standards. It is a good (although not perfect) way to see if a browser compliant or not.

The video above shows the Acid3 results of Chrome, Opera, Firefox, and IE8. Opera and Chrome scores 100, Firefox scores 94, but IE8 scores only 20. Older versions barely render the page properly. IE9, in comparison, gets a shiny 100.

Almost 25% of users in China still use IE6. With China's economic status, this implies a problem. Web developers will still need to consider IE6 because of the market in China. 

If you use a PC with an older version of IE, please tell the owner to upgrade their browers to Chrome, IE9 or Firefox (I'm assuming the PC is not yours.).

See Blood Vessels In Your Eye


     The video above shows how to trick your eyes into showing what it hides from you - the veins in your eye. 

     Because of an effect called Sensory Adaptation, our senses become desensitized to stimulus after a while. It explains why a strong scent disappears after a while, or how ambient sound don't usually bother us. The same happens with the veins in our eye - the veins actually cast shadows in our retina, but we barely notice it.

     The blind spot is a part of your field of vision that can't see. We usually don't notice it because the brains fill the spot with information. The center of your field of vision, called the macula, has the most concentration of retinal cells. In the picture below, the yellow spot is the blind spot, while the red spot (not the shadowy part) is the macula. The image also shows how the veins don't go directly to the macula, preventing you from seeing the veins directly.
Yep, that's an eye.

    This video shows how to see the veins in your eye. To do so, find an object with a hole (you can make one with your fingers) and a source of white light. Rapidly strobe your eyes with light using the object.  You might find it creepy that you can see web-like veins in your vision.
