AN OPEN RANT TO THE INTERNET:

Visit BROWSERSHOTS. See how your site looks in Internet Explorer. Tear your hair out.

I realize we use a public platform (Blogger) for this site; we balance its ease-of-use with the attendant limitations. We aren't web designers, but we care. To see your site look so nice and clean on your computer, only to know that the majority of visitors are seeing some hideous, fuzzy version of the same site, is unbelievably frustrating. The browser you use has a great deal to do with it. Internet Explorer remains the most popular browser in use. Internet Explorer is obsolete. There are better options.
