Blink… blink…

I think it’s quite obvious that whoever redesigned This is Bradford didn’t test it out on Firefox.
Either that, or they have some bizarre grudge against Firefox users. But either way it looks comically stupid.


  1. I quite like the flashing….just glad I’m not hungover.

  2. That’s the funniest thing I’ve seen all week!

  3. Here’s the culprit:
    .nav4:link { text-decoration: blink; }
    Now, WHY THE HELL WOULD THEY DO THAT. + Why doesn’t it work in IE! heh.

  4. Now you see it, now u don’t. Now you see it, now you don’t. Hehe! Excellent! Makes navigating much more interesting…

  5. It acts like that in Opera too. Bizarre…

  6. Hmm, cannot see it. Have they fixed the problem after reading your blog?

  7. It’s still showing for me. IE doesn’t support blinking text, although it is in the CSS2.1 standard, but Opera and probably even Safari will both support it.

  8. What exactly is the point in blink? Is there any actual need for it?
