Attention:  This is pretty old and by now obsolete.

The Nassau Masonic District's website is continues to implement the latest web standards, which are currently HTML5 and CSS3.  All you need to know about these is that they are used to determine how your computer screen displays internet pages.

More precisely, it is how your browser displays the internet.  If you have a Windows system, it came with Internet Explorer (IE) as your browser.  If you are a more savvy user, there are a number of other (free) browsers available.  Similarly, Mac users have available their own browsers.

This site is developed to appear reasonably well on all of the most likely browsers. It turns out, however, that not all browsers are created equal.  Taking Internet Explorer as an example, there are now five version out there that visit the website: IE6, IE7, IE8, IE9, and IE10.  Firefox is a free alternative that has gained popularity, and Google Chrome has come to total dominace.  Safari, for Mac users, follows in fourth place.  Others are Opera and SeaMonkey (a descendent of Mozilla's Netscape Navigator).  This site is viewed/tested with IE8, FireFox, and SeaMonkey.  Microsoft's Edge browswer is compliant right up there with the remainder, albeit with a few nuances.

The CSS3 standards are just too much fun and too useful to ignore.  With some difficulty, I will resist suggesting to you what you should do, for although I'm strongly opinionated, this website is not the place for me to take sides.  I have, however, included a graph, from Wikipedia, showing the decisions others have been making  (June 2013 data).  You can also click below and measure where your current browser stands (and check a list of 'all' browsers).
