    When you submit your site in the "How's My Site?" forum (http://www.webdesignforums.net/forumdisplay.php?f=86), you can now see what browsers members used to view your site and submit their ratings. When you submit a rating for a site, your browser is detected and saved along with your rating, then aggregated with the rest of the ratings.

    Note that because this was only recently added, only new threads will start detecting browsers. Old ones won't show browser information (unless you submit a rating now, at which point it will detect that not all ratings have browsers and inform you of such).

    The browsers it can detect are: Opera, Camino, Konqueror, Firefox, Firebird, Safari, WebTV/MSN TV, Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla, generic Webkit-powered browsers, and generic Mac browsers.

    I noticed that most sites in that section only have one or two votes. I think the rating system may have become a bit over-complex and that's what's deterring people from voting.

    Why not instead use a wholistic rating approach - not like the previous version, but simply an icon to indicate whether or not you liked the site, kind of like the reputation icons? The more complex version could be added as an optional feature.

    I just think that many people simply look at the site and move on. If there was a convenient, one-click way of rating the site, there would be many more votes.

    Perhaps, but the usage of the previous two-click (item in a dropdown selection) system was even less frequently used.

    that was fast

    you're right, but I believe the formula is
    difficulty = (number of steps)^2
