I develop my programs by hand using a simple HTML editor. My operating system for this job is presently (7/2002) MS Windows 98 SE, testing it first with IE 5.5 on the same machine.
Then the programs are tested (7/2002) under Win 98 SE with
- IE 6
- NS 7
- Opera 7
- Mozilla 1.0 (2003)
Due to the present MS policies
- I do not use Java since IE 6 (and probably higher) no longer employs it,
and often Java does not get plugged-in by users.
- I occasionally do use XML/VML and HTML+TIME as brought out by MS. This will solely run under IE5 and higher. However, even there on installation both features may have to be plugged in (depending on how you install which browser), otherwise they may not support it.
- I know of problems with cyrillic and Asian browser settings. Sorry, at this time my programs are not (yet) in UNICODE.
- My very special excuses towards the analog modem users : I do think of you, folks, fairly often and sometimes I make the pictures a little bit less resolved because of you. But my main customers are colleges, universities and search engines with fast accesses, often as fast as 2 Mbit/sec. And that's the future. I myself use ADSL for testing, running at 750 Kbit/sec.
In principle (?) all programs of
Early Ideas in the History of Quantum Chemistry
should run on all operating systems.
There have been reports of occasional troubles of MAC's running Netscape. The reasons for this did not come to my attention, there was no more feedback.
There are apparently no problems with NT4 and higher.
No known problems under Linux.
Sorry folks, but I have to optimize for MS IE 5 and higher for the simple reason that 80% of all people use these. I will refrain from any comments at this point!
I occasionally use XML/VML and HTML+TIME; these programs will then run under all browsers, however, without the added 'goodies' (like special color shades, special effects). The advantages of this being that the code needed is much shorter than when employing SCRIPT languages and the like.
