Blog Colours, Browsers and Sensorarily Busy Websites

Most often, I use my laptop computer for simple day to day tasks. The powerful main desktop computer is used for more specialised tasks.

I have noticed that the screen on the big desktop computer makes the colours on the Blog look garish. On the laptop, they look subtle and pleasing.

How can I discover which is more accurate? There must be a way.

Also, friends have told me that often they can't view the Blog in Internet Explorer. I usually write the posts in Opera and double check the appearance in Google Chrome. I found IE too confusing in the beginning, and have never quite got to grips with it.

Too much movement and flashes on screen does my head no good at all. After a short time, I get cognitive problems and have to stop. When I started using the Internet, pop ups and such could not be stopped in IE, but they could in Opera, and that is how I became an Opera fan. It is very customisable so I can choose what I want to see and how I want to see it.

Opera has not been able to squash all annoying banners etc, but my Kaspersky Internet Protection does. I love the way it blocks banner ads. They are especially annoying on Photobucket, but it is far more user friendly now that Kaspersky squashes them before they show up.

I can't be the only person who finds visually 'busy' websites makes them feel ill. I wonder what other people do. I should imagine that lots of sufferers of neurological illnesses such as Epilepsy have trouble with 'busy' websites too. Using the Opera Browser and Kaspersky Internet Security works for me for now. In the future when more 'nasties' are dreamed up, more solutions will have to be sought. IT is a very fast moving world. A lot faster than my brain, I might add.
