Alex Russell on browsers, standards, and the process of progress.


Some bugs just creep in and out of your consciousness until someone forcibly sets them right in front of you. Today's case in point? The content loader and IE 5.0.

Ever since Jeff Yates showed me how to use the XMLHTTP object, I've been wondering if it would be possible to use that to re-construct the content loader for IE 5.0...lo and behold, it works.

Since I haven't been testing on this platform for like years, it's going to take a while to find all of the latent bugs that I've introduced without knowing it. Nevertheless, I'm totally stoked about how fast it runs, and the fact that menus seem to work flawlessly just gives me that holiday cheer all over =)
