3.8.4 looks different in IE7

Hi guys,

For me IE7 seems to render 3.8.4 differently to IE8, Safari and
Firefox. It’s missing all the nice round edges on the various buttons
and panel headers etc, and generally doesn’t look as nice.

IE7:

Safari:

Is that expected, or is there something wrong with my install perhaps?

I can see this in the source:

So maybe it’s a CSS issue?

Cheers,

Justin

IE doesn’t support the nice bit of CSS we use to round corners. (Neither
does Opera)

Adding corner rounding for IE without lots of hand-tooled images and
ugly html hacking caused an upsetting performance degradation in page
rendering speed.

So, it’s expected and intentional. But not something I’m happy about.

Gotta love different browser implementations :slight_smile: Still one less problem
that I actually need to try and fix.

Thanks for the quick reply Jesse!
