Exploring with Internet Explorer 7

After launching my new site design at the beginning of September, I’ve had almost no free time to deal with any problems. Today I’ve finally managed to resolve some outstanding issues with Internet Explorer 7. The first was a problem with the jQuery slideDown() function that prevented the slide viewer from displaying properly unless the visitor clicked the banner twice. The second was using the JavaScript Date.now() function, which is not supported in IE7. This was easily fixed by replacing it with the jQuery.now() function, which returns exactly the same value, but has built in support for older browsers.

However, if you are still using Internet Explorer 7, it really is time to upgrade to something better. IE7 is more than 6 years old now, and has fallen badly behind in terms of security and standards support.
