Website Update: New Text Buttons Revealed Today on FirstShowing
by Alex Billington
April 11, 2011
As many of you have probably already noticed, we just launched a new series of buttons today at the top of FirstShowing.net to replace the old ones (that we've had for years). It may seem odd that I'm writing a post about this change, but the reason I am is because we're using the latest HTML/CSS code possible with these new buttons to make sure everything looks as fantastic as it possibly can. However, this means that the new font won't work in old browsers, so I'm writing this to strongly encourage and emphasize that the website won't look right unless you use modern browsers like Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Opera.
As always, we ask that you help us out if you encounter any issues, bugs or downtime as we continue to make updates to the site. And if you find anything that looks weird or doesn't work properly, please don't hesitate to contact us. We take all of your feedback to heart and use that to improve the experience on FS.net for everyone. The changes we made today include use of a custom font unique to FS.net, and only those modern browsers mentioned above include support for this kind of integration. We made this design update because it will help improve page load times and lessen stress on the server - which means a faster, better experience for everyone. Plus, we also thought it was about time we updated those buttons at the top!
That's all for now, but you may notice additional design tweaks and updates throughout the next few weeks as we lead into the summer. We look forward to growing FirstShowing further as we head into the 2010's.
