I'm actually curious how the system looks for someone using IE 10. Before you upgrade please can you tell me - do the conversation names (list on the left) look "Square" or "oval" to you?

When you press "New Message" do the buttons for Send and Clear look to be out of place?

When you open a conversation, does each message look like a speech bubble or just a square?

I found the old system of being able to delete a message without opening it first , quite useful at times.

Everything seems ok on Opera mobile on mi Nokia N8 although on Opera mini , same phone, I can no longer post in the forums??? Is this purely coincidence , or gremlins lol

I am on IE11 but keep getting a message from web page saying IE is old and should be updated for full functionality (something like that). OS is win 7 HP 64 bit if that helps...

Old Red - that's really weird! Must be that Microsoft cocked it up between version's 8 and 9 then. Are you absolutely sure?

Dustin - the forums haven't been changed, they use a Rich Text Editor. In the future the forums might also be going the same way the PMs system has gone. The whole site needs revamping and bringing up to date.

Red Daytona - That's very strange. Are you absolutely sure you're using IE11? Are you running it in compatibility mode. I'm quite sure you must be, or you're mistaken about the version, because IE 11 no longer identifies itself as a Microsoft browser to websites.

Hi Matt,
new communicator is ace.
In Opera (latest version)all buttons are rounded but the only thing I can see wrong is the other persons conversation is hard up against the white dotted line of the conversation list so that you can barely see the 2 green ticks. its read able and not expecting you to fix it Firefox not a problem big gap between dotted line and message ....looks great.

Thanks guys

Please, please will those of you having problems (warning popping up in IE 11 for example) follow this link and send the results to me?

All you have to do is click that link, fill in your name and email address, and send the form. I will do the rest.

I really need this though please because I'm struggling to understand why the "ugly" version is appearing for some people using new browsers, it doesn't make sense. You shouldn't be getting square conversation buttons and the IE warning message.

The only reason I can think of is that you have COMPATIBILITY MODE turned on... which basically transforms your fancy up to date browser into a dumb, old, incompatible ancient technology browser (that mode is to help you with very old websites which you find DON'T work, but it stops modern websites from functioning fully using the latest technologies).

Hope that helps
