Image resizing – IE reports wrong dimensions

Interview Questions

I was looking for something entirely different and found this blog about interviewers asking questions at interviews and why they are good questions. I decided to answer them to find out how I would fare in the modern day interview.

And to top ot all up, I can create an add-on so that users visiting my site have an extra-rich experience. Linked-in did it, so can I.

For me the browser war is not just something that happens in the background. Whenever I see people, colleagues, who develop in IE and don’t make their site standard compatible, I cringe. whenever I go to company that insists that we must use IE as the de-facto company browser, I cringe. the reason I cringe is because if you had a car manufacturer produced a car so fuel inefficient, so clunky to drive and with a engine without 3rd gear, you wouldn’t want to drive it, would you? Now why the hell is this what most companies choose to do with their browsers is beyond me…

Some even elected to stay with IE6… I wouldn’t work for them.
