The city of Norwalk has just revealed their new web site. And here’s what they have on the front page:
Please note our website is best viewed with Internet Explorer 7 or 8
Ah yes because taxpayer money is used here’s some best practices noted on the web:
It is a sure sign of bad design, when a website posts a requirement that the viewer must use a specific browser to access the information in the site.
It is inappropriate for a taxpayer-funded organization to restrict access to its website by posting a requirement that the viewer must use a specific browser.
All taxpayer-funded websites should be designed to work properly with a variety of browsers and to be viewable on a representative variety of monitor screen sizes.
Any taxpayer-funded website should work properly when viewed with any of the most-used browsers — IE (for both PC and Mac), Netscape, Firefox, Safari and Opera, at least.
Any taxpayer-funded website should work properly when viewed with any monitor screen from a width of 800 pixels to 1280 pixels.
Oh just go to source, anybowser.org.
