FTE Menu Bar, Version 2.0

Well gang, I managed to get access to a Macintosh and several versions of browsers. FTE's menuing system has been completely revamped. Here are the test results:


Windows
-------
Opera 7.0: 100%
Opera 7.54: 100%
Netscape 7.2: 100%
Netscape 7.0: 100%
Netscape 6.0: Drop-down portion of the menu doesn't work, but top bar clicks through perfectly. 100% functional from user perspective because top bar items brings user to screen with each sub-menu.
Netscape 4.78: Completely unusable. Screen will not load completely the the portion that does looks horrible. Overlapping screen areas renders page useless. Accounts for less than 0.2% of users.
Internet Explorer 6.0: 100%
Internet Explorer 5.5: 100%
Internet Explorer 5.0: 100%
Internet Explorer 4.0: could not test, browser kept crashing. Accounts for less than 0.05% of users.
Firefox 1.0: 100%
Mozilla 1.7.3: 100%

Macintosh
---------
Firefox 1.0: 100%
Safari 1.2.4: Very minor pull down menu border display issue but 100% functional.
Netscape 7.2: 100%
Mozilla 1.7.3: 100%
Internet Explorer 5.2: Drop-down portion of the menu doesn't work, but top bar clicks through perfectly. 100% functional from user perspective because top bar items brings user to screen with each sub-menu.
Opera 7.54: 100%

Enjoy!

PS ---- I'll do Linux testing on Monday.

What Ken did was Tweak FTE so that every possible browser that people use will have the best performance available equally.

That's what I see anyway

What I see is........

a man who listened to constructive criticism when he didnt have to, and stepped up to the plate and fixed it!!!!!! I give my hard earned money to this site because I enjoy it that much, and you taking the time to fix those issues for those of us on different platforms who use different browsers is a big part of why I spend so much time on here

What I see is........

A website that has managed to take a business, and not only profit from it (I assume) but turn it into something that its members/"customers" enjoy thoroughly.

What I see is........

My favorite website, on my favorite computing platform, on my favorite browser working perfectly again.

I thank you, once again for all you do, A+ and it looks great

I also wholeheartedly thank whoever let you borrow that Mac, tell them they made my morning when I got home from work

Thanks again.......seriously

Thank you for the kind words, I really appreciate it.

I wish I could thank someone for loaning a Macintosh... but what I did was find an excellant paid service that gives remote access to many different platforms for the purposes of testing. Its paid up through the end of May so let's hope any bugs show up before then!

Dammit I wish I'd known you were looking for someone to help test with a Mac - I use a Mac and all browsers

No worries. It was cheap: $59.95 for a month. Remote access to Macintosh platforms in a variety of configurations. Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server and may more configs with dozens of different browsers, with and without flash installed. It was worth every penny.
