About Your Browser...


If you really did get the JavaScript alert on the previous page, but just clicked the link to see what it did, well now you know. Hit your BACK button.

There are only two possibilities

  1. Your browser doesn't support Java Script
  2. Your browser has Java Script disabled

If your're running Netscape or Internet Explorer, then it's probably disabled. See below.

You may not know anything about JavaScript, or you may not care that your browser doesn't support it.

I don't care either, but the Conspiracy Central message board runs on it.  If you have no intention of enabling it or upgrading your browser, then there's no way you'll be able to use the message board. I don't feel too bad about that, since there's a whole lot of stuff on the web you simply can't do, and this is just one more. Have a nice day.

If, your browser doesn't support it but you'd like to get one that does, here are a couple of links you can use to get one.   There may be others.  If you know what they are and where to get them, that's fine with me as well.  These are just the two major players in the market at this time.

Which do I recommend?  Netscape 7.x.  Why?  A couple of reasons, most of which are technical. Netscape 7.x does a better job or rendering this site's pages than Internet Explorer 6.0. That may change over time, but for now, that's the case.

Here are the links:

Get Netscape 7.x Get Internet Explorer 6.x
