Viewing Travelfish on different browsers

Posted by daawgon on 24/5/2013 at 12:56

Recently I've noticed quite a difference between Travelfish on Firefox and the same on Internet Explorer - especially the slide show on the home page. Is Travelfish optimized for Internet Explorer?

Hi Daawgon,

We develop on Macs now so it should look very similar on Chrome, Firefox and Safari. It's been a while since ice looked at it on IE. but I'll find a cafe today to take a look.

Can you give me a bit more info? Are the slides how images stacking on top of each other vertically? That was a problem a while back.

Cheers & thanks.

Firefox is my main browser, and the slides stack vertically for about 30 seconds, and then they disappear. They're fine on IE as far as I can tell. Since Firefox has so many add-ons, etc., it would be hard to pinpoint a problem, and I use several which could alter the appearance of your site.

Thanks for the info.

Chrome stacks them as well but only until page loads which depending on internet speed can be seconds or next to no time at all.

Yes, my estimate of 30 secs is way too long

I don't know if the correct term is "stacking" but those images zip past too fast for me on firefox. I glimpse something interesting and its already gone before I can click on it. It definitely doesn't stay there 30 seconds but it would be better if it did. Better still, can't you add a back and forward button so that people can scroll through and find the topic that interests them? As it is you have to sit and wait for the picture to come round again which is a bit time consuming for the user.

I'm sitting at an airport with nothing better to do than watch the pics zip by. I count 3 seconds per pic on a reasonable WiFi signal, using Chrome. I agree it would be nice if there was a forward and backward option.
