No, no, & no.

IE8 is much more standards-compliant than IE6 and Chrome uses WebKit for its rendering which is also very standards-compliant.

Well to answer your question if the page content is displayed the same. The latest versions of IE, FF, and Chrome are more "Dynamic" and display the same content but based on the width of your screen some website have particular validation to redirect a guest to an appropriate page based on their width of their screen.

To answer your second question, I have heard from a few reliable friends that Google Chrome is a "lite" version of IE8. There are a couple of reviews on this issue at ZDNET.com

I would recommed upgrading your current version of IE or FF because the previous versions of these two browsers are know to have problems with new Dynamic Web 2.0 websites.

Both of these posts are pretty much 100% incorrect. (n)

The OP's question:

Width has nothing to do with how the content is rendered in different browsers.

Dynamic also doesn't really mean anything in this context, its just a marketing word.

To answer your second question, I have heard from a few reliable friends that Google Chrome is a "lite" version of IE8.
That statement is so wrong I can't even begin to tell you how wrong it is.

Chrome HAS NOTHING to do with IE, version 8 or not.

It is a completely different thing with a different rendering engine, javascript engine, and UI.

I would recommed upgrading your current version of IE or FF because the previous versions of these two browsers are know to have problems with new Dynamic Web 2.0 websites.
WTH is "Dynamic Web 2.0"??

This post is also a bit off-topic, and incorrect.

IE 7 isn't THAT much better than IE6 its just that its hard to support both because each have their own quirks.

Also the difference between the FF 2.0 rendering engine (Gecko 1.8) and FF 3 rendering engine (gecko 1.9) isn't that dramatic, its quite easy to support both.

Ok. Since MMJ, is a little more "in-tune" with this topic I will stand down on giving advice for this topic, but it does sound like MMJ has a bit of an attitude.

What ever, you do what you can do to help?

-Thanks

Don't take it personally, everyone is a bit misinformed. :)

Just trying to clear things up a bit.

Why is it the website appears on FF3 on my Vista is different than FF3 on my XP ?
Hard to say without seeing the differences or knowing the nature of the differences.

Peace...

I vote for upgrading to Firefox 3, Opera, 9.5 or some other browser that uses a Gecko or WebKit rendering engine.

Peace...

Don't forget though that there are quite a few of your site visitors that will be on IE6. So make sure you keep it around for testing.
