We as web developers sometimes take our knowledge for granted and forget that not everyone knows that there are browsers out there that aren’t our old nemesis, Internet Explorer. We forget that most people that come to us for development most likely grew up without the internet and never had the need to look further than good ol’ Internet Explorer (IE for short). Thus it is our job to educate them instead of looking down on them.
This post will serve as that, an introduction to browsers, how to make sure you’re getting the best experience out of them and a brief explanation of why Internet Explorer is the enemy.

As part of our quotation process for larger web based systems and sites we, like most decent developers, make use of Wireframes and Specification Documents (Spec Docs) after delivering our initial ball-park quote, to plan the entire system before delivering an in-depth quotation. After all, the five P’s taught us that “Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance” and we tend to believe that. However, clients do not always understand WHY they need wireframes and a spec doc, and especially WHY they need to pay for these items. Hopefully this post will help clarify those WHY’s and turn them into AYE’s.
