We get a lot of questions about browsers like:  "Which one is best?  How do I know which browser version I'm using?" And even, "What is a browser?"   So we thought it would not be wasted time to do a post with some of the basics about browsers.  So here goes.  Browse on through our browser brain food.

Remember that game show, “The Weakest Link?"  On the show, people were asked a series of questions to test their brainpower in a high pressure, timed environment.  If they weren’t fast enough or answered too many questions incorrectly, they were ousted from the group and were rudely told that they were the “weakest link.”  What a trip down memory lane!

Likewise, weak links, or even worse, dead links on your website are not a good thing.  They make visitors feel like the website administrator doesn't really care about the content on the website.  In this post let’s take a close look at the value of links on your site and how to make them work for you.

Links between websites are a fundamental part of the web. In fact, links are what makes the Internet. Links to your website are a very important part of the way search engines (Google in particular) rank your site.

We’ve decided to write a few blogs about some design snafus that can easily be fixed in your website.  One of the most annoying design flaws is the “all-centered” website layout. You may have seen this before: everything runs centered down the page, no clear distinction between sections, and, in some cases, text in all caps.

Phooey! Yuck!

Let’s consider a few steps to clean up this weak design.

Often our clients are confused about which fonts are best to use for their websites and ask us which font is the best. 

The answer to this question is both easy and a little complicated. There are the highly necessary standard fonts for websites as well as well as any font that can be embedded into an image and loaded onto a website.

I’d like to clear up this confusion and provide some solid “web font” advice.

Using keyboard shortcuts can often cut your data input time in half.  We use lots of shortcuts and often mention them to clients, who are amazed that these functions are available.  You may find some that are helpful, some that are good to know and some that you just can't live without.  We've compiled a list of keyboard shortcuts that we use frequently and recommend to everyone .  We’ve divided these useful tools into two categories:  Basic PC Shortcut Keys and Keyboard Shortcuts for Web Browsing.

Attendance has been low, fewer members are participating in projects and events, and no new members are joining. You’re worried about your club’s future.

What do you do?

Here are a few ideas we’ve gleaned from the web, and some of our clients, that may help you rev up your club’s enthusiasm and give you something to consider.

Can you read this?

“Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, neque velit suspendisse nunc mattis, eu duis vel viverra tortor, a massa feugiat, felis volutpat ut ultrices sit ante tincidunt. Amet fermentum, etiam lacus neque nonummy est mauris, urna nunc sagittis.”

You can’t? Good! We can’t either. And neither can 99.999% (approximately) of the people on this planet.

That’s the whole point of Lorem Ipsum — meaningless, gibberish text that can’t be read or understood and yet can flow naturally in a design layout. It’s actually one of those little-known design tools that are very important to the design process.

Here’s the scenario.  Connect 2 Clubs has built a beautiful website for your club.  It’s launched to rave reviews from most of your members, except one that complains that the site is all jumbled and can’t be viewed.  So you call us, and the first question that we will ask is, “What browser is that member using?”  Chances are that browser is Internet Explorer 6.
