I was asked to download a copy of Sun’s Solaris and in the process needed to install the Java runtime environment on my Linux server/mess-about-workstation. Sun have redesigned their website since I was last there, and it looks great.
I found it odd that it didn’t work correctly in Konqueror as it’s a browser for Unix and Linux, and that it didn’t look right in Firefox on Windows 2000 either. I found it particularly odd as the CSS was invalidated by the inclusion of Proprietary Mozilla CSS Properties. So you think they’d have checked it in Firefox right? So why the overlapping blocks of text?
And it’s a shame to see that the HTML didn’t validate either. Still, I guess there’s still a few more years of being able to use the excuse “well our site is run by a CMS so you see we couldn’t quite get it to validate”.
Anyhoo, not to focus on the negative for too long, I think it’s a great looking site and I’ve been able to find all the stuff I’ve needed during my visits.
Update:OK, the visual rendering now seems to be fixed in both browsers – they were probably updating the homepage.
