Windows Vista IE Problem

The TA site is totally weird since two days ago.

The right bar with all the game releases, new games, etc are all over the place and it is impossible to use.

To get the problem "fixed" I have to go to New Games section (menu bar, on top).

Thank you,

Bruno

The problem is your using Interent Explorer.

Get Firefox, Safari, or Chrome. All of which are better.

But there is a plus to IE, Zincous... You can download Firefox with it.

Hey post a screenshot if you get a chance, we actually did recently make some minor changes to the front page template code a few days ago... But nothing that should have broken how anything is displayed in Internet Explorer.

Different versions of Internet Explorer have different levels of breakage. It could be an IE7 or IE8 specific problem. It's difficult to get sites to NOT break on IE while still maintaining some sense of modern features.

IMHO, leave it broken. And throw up a banner that says, "Get a real browser". The sooner IE dies, the sooner the Internet will be a safer, faster, and more feature-rich place for everyone.

(I know, it's still hanging around like an undead zombie. But a guy can dream, can't he? )

While I'd love to be smarmy about such things, we're much more concerned with accessibility than preaching the word of Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and other alternative browsers.

...But don't get me wrong, I have no love for IE. Unfortunately, IE users still account for far too much traffic across the entire internet to just say nuts to making sure TA renders well for them. :P
