I think that the lack of auto-image-resizing is more of an issue when someone links to a larger image hosted elsewhere. When I want to post a nice, good quality image, I go to Photobucket to upload, so as not to overtax the forum's storage. It worked fine when the image would show up on a post as a "thumbnail" (a large thumbnail, but a thumbnail!). But now larger images display too large.

By the way, am I missing the issue people had with the ads? Ads have never been a problem on my screen...

They don't make your window scroll. That's all that matters unless I'm missing something.

It is possible that I am the one missing something! (it has happened before!)

The long and short of it is, on my computer, the lack of auto-resizing of images makes images display full size, thus making me have to scroll left and right to see the whole image, and often the whole thread.

This is the page that really made me think my computer was messed up:

Does this help?

They resize perfectly for me.

Do you have javascript turned off in your browser?

Well it seems to only not work in IE8, I've tried every other browser and it works perfectly. It's a shame Microsoft has never been able to make a fully compliant browser. Sadly for IE8 users, I'm not going to code around a busted browser.

Sorry to bust the theory, but I am using IE8 and have no problem with images.

Only occasionally do I have to scroll but that's in my impatience when the the page has not downloaded during slow internet times.

Everything fine here.

Rod,
Maybe this will help you make a decision? For much the same reasons as Bobby - testing software I have 3 browsers: I personally use Chrome, and IE9 but have Firefox too.

I use Firefox and everything works fine, even with that huge Guyana image. I just tested in MS Internet Exploiter 9 (64 bit), and as with Exploiter 8 there still are resize problems. Go with Firefox

Perhaps there should be some type of maximum image width? May be hard to enforce... I have to try that new optimizer thingie and see what that's like!

Yep I can assign a max-width to images.... and every browser except IE parses it correctly.

Check out the global shares...

Now consider that IE is pre-installed and set as the default browser on 95% of every computer sold but has less than a 50% share. That's absolutely pathetic in opinion and shows IE's true colors.
