New BF Site Look

Recommended Posts

'Something' seems to be happening across the web and I don't know what. Multiple websites are hastily changing formats and designs. One website I frequent has posted a notice that after September Internet Explorer is not longer going to work on the site.  Another website I frequent has already screwed-over IE users. Something's up.

Most websites are now 'responsive' in that they adapt to being viewed on different sized sceens rather than seperately coded for small mobile screens / tablets / desktop monitors  / laptops.

IE has been the bane for web developers for yonks as MS didn't adhere to commonly agreed web standards , so addendum workaround code needs to be added to websites to bodge them to work with IE.  Chrome/Firefox or a mac wth Safari should tide you over.

Is it just my system or has this site been given a new look?  No one else has mentioned this, so am wondering if I changed some settings on my system... ??  :blink:

I just discovered this thread, but I am surprised no one mentioned it earlier. The site was inaccessible for much of a day a week ago. Instead, there was a message that it was being serviced. When it finally came back up, voilá, the new look.

Oh, I see, I can view my photos again on their site (along with ads or sumfink), but they want payola to share to third parties. Sorry guys, time you learned the actual value of "free" in an internet of infinite content.
