Zoom:1 IE Fix

After playing around with the layout and jQuery for a while, Internet Explorer 8 was really pissing me off. Everything that worked in Firefox, Safari Chrome didn’t work properly in Internet Explorer 8. I wonder why that browser is still around… Anyhow, I later found a quick solution that can fix most of the IE problems, and that’s the zoom:1 fix! All you need to do is add the following line to your css:

1div {
2    zoom: 1; 

And just that like, every problem that I was having disappeared. I can’t really explain why, and apparently neither can this blogger. But the point is, use it and save yourself some trouble. Microsoft, when are you going to figure it out…?
