[ Topic » Assholes ] [ Selection » Tech News: FireFox decides to ZOOM internet pages against our will! ]

I'm really in a pickle. I have been designing a Privatized network that adjusts automatically to resolution and DPI. I do this with a cookie that gets your monitor, TV or Cell Phone resolution and then I display the right size fonts and pages accordingly. I have spent over a decade writing the code and designing the network layout so that we all had a place to go when we moved on to higher resolution monitors and desktops. I have to write my code so that it supports all browsers and DOCTYPES.

FireFox has taken it upon themselves to change the zoom in your browser without your permission. What this means is that all the work I have done to create software that does this on the fly for everyone has been rendered useless because FireFox zooms your page automatically. It does not give you a choice or way to adjust it back. So when you visit my page in FireFox it thinks it is doing you a favor when in fact the software on my page already takes care of displaying things correctly on your monitor and resolution. So what you get is a page that is trashed!

We have standards and FireFox has done plenty of bitching about other browsers taking control away from the end user and then all the sudden they do it themselves and it's okay? It is an insult to the end user in many ways. Are we too stupid to change the zoom on a web page ourselves? No, we are not and they are breaking standards by forcing ZOOM on all of us. Not to mention we have always had the ability to do this by our own choice, the option has always been there in every single browser.

Netscape lost their audience by making some of the very same foolish mistakes. It soon became known as NUTSCRAPE and end users would refer to it as a piece of a shit browser that was not good for anything accept wiping your ass with it.
