  4. 4

    • 5

      This is a good description of what we feel for IE6 and its brothers about website rendering. Funny!

  5. 6

    nice !!! :D Like it.

  6. 7

    Very funny!

    I would like to see bigger images :P

  7. 8

    Lol… The little IE character is funny… “WHAT!?”

    Can’t wait for the series…

  8. 9

    I like it :D

  9. 10

    This should be fun. Best of luck Ricardo! (tip: ignore the haters)

  10. 11

    wow , that’s very funny and good step from smashingmagazine for comic web cartoons ;)

  11. 12

    What’s the license on these? Would love to be able to share, like XKCD. #1 is fabulous!

  12. 13

    Me Likez!

  13. 14

    this has to be a lot better than your fail comic.

    • 15

      I wondered how far down the comments I’d have to read before I saw one like that. Cartoons/Comics are meant to be subjective. Each to their own and all that.

  14. 16

    Aww! The little ie character almost makes me like the browser. Almost.

    Thanks guys ;)

  18. 20

    Very good initiative! I’ve been longing for a smashing comic! Please make sure to put them up in a good manner so one can read them through a rss-reader or similar on the cellphones. I read all my comics on my phone while I’m on the subway or the likes.

  19. 21

    I don’t like IE5 6 7 8 either.
    I do like cartoons.
    I sneak around quite a while.

    But: I don’t get it.

  20. 22

    I like is cool!

  21. 23

    Fabulous !
    I can’t wait to see next scenes !
    I guess it all will be tweeted ?

  22. 24

    I like it!

  23. 25

    Cartoon #1 very funny.
    You should add “Boo”, to make it funnier.

  24. 26

    What the heck is wrong with you guys? Are you all zombified by the G trend? I am looking stupefied how an incredible large number of “followers” are turning normal people into Demi, or Semi Gods. It;s just a magazine composed of articles gathered form around the world. If you were to Google it, you’ll find just as that or better.

    I see nothing funny guys, sorry.

  26. 29

    ummmm…. i have nothing to say but one word in dinosour:RAAAAAWWWWWRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!♥

  27. 30

    someone please tell me what is funny about this.

  28. 31

    So this is a web design magazine? The page is broken in FF 3.6 on a 1024×786 monitor. The right edge of the comic overflows & gets hidden.

    • 32

      Yes this is a web design magazine. Site demographic would entail designers with FAR HIGHER resolution and therefore they may extend their site resolution higher….solution, buy a real monitor.

      • 33

        Thanks for the advice, James. Designing for a 1024 pixel width monitor is pretty standard. Many people still use that size monitor. Especially on laptops and netbooks. For a site that specializes in web design, it’s kind of a silly mistake to make. Telling people to buy things to fix the website’s problem is a lazy snob’s excuse – it’s the same as a web designer ignoring their IE users and telling them to install FF.

        And I’m in agreement with the majority of readers here – the comic’s not even funny!

          I have to agree. 1024px is standard. And its standard for SMag, too. They could provide solutions for higher resolutions but they have to make a version for 1024. Definitly.

          The IPad is funny, but i dont get the IE one.

  29. 35

    jajajajajaja, just love the second one… XD
