What browsers are some of you using at the new TR site?

I've had little success with Opera 11.64 or 12.16, Internet Explorer 8 is shaky, IE10 only partially working. What browsers are some of you other "regulars" using? Oh, Dillo
doesn't work at all...no scripting capability.

    If ALL browsers don't work with a major Web site, the problem lies in the development and design of the Web site. End of story.

    ALL - I repeat ALL - major browsers should work, especially on a Web site dedicated to IT professionals, run by IT professionals. This repeated issue with TechRepublic - which browsers work, which ones don't - should be an embarrassment to them.

    So TR works with IE AND IE.

    Chrome works great, you just cannot see the navigation menu at the top, and Firefox works like a champ, if you don't mind waiting over a minute for each page to load and get a 'page not found' error when trying to post a reply.

    Oh, and the Captchas do seem to fail even when I enter them correctly. Almost like they are timing out or something.

    Well done, robo_dev. You've pulled off something others could not - you posted a reply! And a fine reply it was, I might add.

    You asked for it:

    By the way, when the CAPTCHA is missing, and you're using IE, try changing the compatibility mode.
