Been testing different browsers.  These work :  IE6, IE8, Chrome.  IE7 would work too I am guessing.  Anyone got time to test Firefox, I don't have it installed at the moment  ?

Yes,

Have had the latest version of Opera 10 and it seems to work pretty well plus it has voice reading if the user selects a portion of a web page that he / she would like read to them aloud. The voice is a slightly modified version or the L&H Michell / Michael voices.

Ok...nice gimmick but there are far better sounding voices as far as TTS goes.

Opera does have the usual bells and whistles along with a few custom ones like custom widgets. Widgets are useful(?) little web programs that perform a variety of tasks (weather, news, doodling, time/clocks, news, all sorts of things).
There are other items like Notes (on screen note writing), Transfers (for messages, files, etc.) , cookie manager, Password Manager, Pop-up blockers and lots more.

For the money...Opera 10 is a nice addition to one's browser collection (it's FREE)!! ;)

Thanks Art, good to know Opera works.  Never tried that one out.  After programming the site to work in three or four browsers you start to loose the will to live.  IE is by far the worst to program for as it has so many bugs, especially in the older versions.  IE7 or 8 may be a little better, will have to see.  It was important to get IE6 working as I think it's still one of the top browsers, you start to want to campaign for people to upgrade!

Anyway's that's another one taken care of  :)

If you like gadgets then Yahoo does a nice line.  Also you will like Windows 7 as it comes with a lot of them too and you can download more.  I will post more on my Windows 7 experiences in another thread some time.

I use another statistics system that records short-term figures, this graph basically show a typical 12-24 hour time slot of what people use, so I was right about IE6.  Wonder why people don't upgrade ?

Sorry Freddy, didn't mean to give a whole rundown on Opera but it does work nicely and thought it worth mentioning a few of it's features.

Have used Firefox 3 (and recent upgrade) for the past few days as well and the only thing odd is the very opening AI Dreams title logo box is shown at the top left of the screen (over the blue robot's head) and not centered as with all the other browsers.

Other than that one fluke, it works very well!
It too, has a lot of good features, tabbed browsing, security, encryption, privacy, pop-up blockers, etc.

That's the nice thing about "standards"...there's so many to choose from!!  ;D

No problem, I found the rundown interesting and it was just nice to know it works.  I have been curious in the speech features actually so that was good as well.

Yes, there's some difference about the way the logo gets displayed, it was a minor thing I thought so haven't fiddled with it much.  I 'll sort it out at some point.  Good to know Firefox works too and yes we are spoiled for browsers!

 :D  I'm sure there was a good cause at some point...

The new site has gone live now.  I'm trialling Google Ads as well, to see if we can make something towards hosting costs.  I hope they don't detract too much..

Damn time goes so fast sometimes.  I had meant to update earlier than this but alas I didn't get to it.  Anyways there's a few new items added and more to come.

I removed the comment system today too.
