Wow, NoScript actually makes the site work. No more loading lags, no more stupid black borders. Now all I need to find is the way to skip from strip to strip when I need to catch up with several days of missed strips. Why can't we have the calendar back?!?
I took the advice I found in the comments found on a strip from last week and installed the noscript
extension to firefox. Now the site behaves well enough for me to enjoy the comics. But I vote with the vocal majority here. Please stop being Mordac and put this site back the way it was. Or atleast w3c validate it and fix the nonstandard elements.
