I've had the same problems with the site too. Sometimes I have to close windows and come back and log in again as well as pages loading partway(usually just the Axiom header at the top) then stalling...other times, no probs. Actually, I've had similar problems with some other sites too, like Sports Illustrated and Motortrend.

IE8 actually does things a little bit differently than IE7.

Here at my job, I know that our web developers were bitching about IE8 because our company's website did some strange little funky things when viewed with IE8. Perfectly fine with IE6/7, Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc, but not with IE8. I don't know the details, but I know they had to make some software changes to our site to get IE8 to render it all correctly.

Perhaps the UBB.threads software that runs our Axiom forum isn't quite 100% compatible with IE8 yet either...

Thanks Ajax for the tip on ieSpell. I'll keep it in mind, but I'm stickin' with Firefox. I'm used to it and it works perfectly for all of 'my' sites. \:\)

If a new/modern browser isn't compatible with a website that isn't exactly pushing the technical barriers of html, php, etc, I'd say it's a poorly written browser.

I have been complaining about the hanging on loading since I joined this forum. Going to page 2 of this thread for example it hanged and I had to close every window open on the forum and log back in. The problem seems random and happens when I open a new thread, click on a different page of a thread or the most annoying when I am submitting a post. I can tell whether it will hang or not after a few seconds and it doesn't send. In the case of submitting a post and it hangs I edit copy the post, close the the windows, log back in, edit paste then send. It can get very annoying on some days.

Ironically it hanged on loading while sending this post.

Unless, of course, the site displays fine in IE but not Firefox. Then it's that the site isn't adhering to established standards.

Well, yes. Particularly if it also doesn't display properly in Safari and others.

Are you saying this is a problem? I don't have issues in Firefox or Safari. Or IE7, for that matter.

No, no, just generically taking seriously CV's facetious comment. I have no problem with the Axiom forums in FF3 on Mac or PC. I don't generally use other browsers to get there.

The Axiom board is the one site I use Firefox for. I was unhappy with how it displayed certain other sites, so it didn't become my browser of choice, but it has let me sidestep most problems with this board. The exception is the weird glitch that turns a lot of posts back to unread, at which point I back up to the main forum page instead.

Don't blame you one bit for sticking with what you know and like. Perfectly understandable.

I think MS knew there would be a few problems with a new browser and older websites not designed specifically for it. Hence, IE 8 comes with a "compatability view."
