UPDATE: Vinny sent me a script that fixes it. Much thanks!
Right after I wrote a neato article on Chrome and Google Bookmarks, my blog stopped “working” in Chrome. I finally figured out why.
Apparently, the script set that powers my dropdown menu—the “Accessible Website Dropdown Menu”—is written to look for the string “Apple Computer” in a browser’s useragent and serve webkit-oriented stuff to those browsers. But Chrome now lists “Google inc.” in the user agent.
More details are in the bug report I filed (which, rightly, was marked “works as intended,” since it’s a script problem, not a Chrome bug).
If any folks more adept at JS than I am want to either help me fix this or—better yet—help the UDM folks fix it, that’d be super :-D.
You may enjoy this fun, somewhat related read about the user-agent string.
Ah, yep, did read that. Gah, so complicated! 😀
w00t… awesome BLADAM-reader (and hella smart colleague) Vinny sent me a fix! 😀
y’all let me know if you see any continued funkiness, please. Thanks!
Thanks for the shoutout 🙂 ‘twas a simple fix … happy to help any time 🙂
Another good post. Thanks Vinny
Still broken in Opera 🙁 (I hope I filled the fields out properly, all I can see is the big comment box 🙂
Thanks vinny. You solve my problems.
Did notice it wasn’t working in chrome. Its good now 🙂
My site was rendering weird as well, but then I contacted google support and within 2 days they fixed whatever the problem was. You may want to report a problem as well.
dont Work in Opera
Gah! Thanks for the info Dani (and others who have recently mentioned this to me as well). I will try to figure out why the menu is now not working in Opera [sigh].
I’m not an early adopter – I like to wait a bit when something new comes out and people have a chance to identify any bugs that need to be fixed.
I just embraced Firefox last year and am happy with it. I guess I need a good reason to switch to Chrome. Any thoughts?
