It's true, I just looked at the animation using Konqueror on Ubuntu. All I did was make the browser tell dilbert.com that it was IE7 running on XP! I still don't really like the animation.

So come on, at least remove the O/S and browser check.

Hmm, it says Beta, can we opt out of the beta test? I just realized, the flash controls on the previous page, really aren't necessary. They're just buttons to go to the other pages, and most of them don't have anything to do with the comic at hand, and are duplicates of the navigation bar above. For the controls that aren't, they can easily be reimplemented with Ajax.

I wonder if anyone did a usability study on the new site format? That would have been nice. Or, are the admins tracking any usage patterns via google analytics or otherwise?

What the truck, this is pretty disappointing. The site looks like crap in Firefox, and the flash is useless. It was pretty nice to be able to open multiple comics in multiple tabs with a few deft ctrl-clicks and catch up for the week, but IE makes it that much more difficult. Any web dev worth their salt should be able to use some Ajax instead to implement these features and make everyone's lives easier. Driving away your viewer base isn't quite the way to monetize your web properties...

Anybody figure out which directories the images are stored in?

Oh. P.S. In the archive, todays strip is already posted, while those using the new flashy site apparently still have to wait... hihi!

Thanks Andy! (as in: Count me in as liking the older format better... I've spent 5 minutes trying to find yesterdays strip: I was too early yesterday, so it wasn't posted yet...)
