Why do I see a warning at the top of the page?
If your browser's not on this list (yeah, I'm looking at you, Internet Explorer), you'll see this message at the top of the page.
While this site degrades gracefully under older browsers, it won't look as nice as it could.
What kind of stuff won't I be able to do?
If your browser doesn't support alpha-PNGs (see chart to the right), GIFs are used instead. This means that the icons will only look good on lighter backgrounds, so you won't be able to use all of the themes.
If your browser doesn't have DOM/DHTML support, all content has to be rendered statically. This takes more space and makes for poorer usability. Lack of CSS2 support causes similar problems, resulting in less flexible layouts.
The default theme has been carefully designed so that it looks nice even on non-compliant browsers.
How do I get rid of the warning?
You can get rid of the warning by using one of the browsers in the downloads sidebar. Or you can just check the "Do not show this message again." box.
