    Same here. It's not bad in IE, but it's confusing having icons for navigation without any text. Save people the effort of hovering over each image and have some text there.

    I do like the nav of your site, but it is confusing without the text. I know to hover, but most people may not get it.
    Site layout is clean, good use of colors.
    Something about the home page doesn't quite "pop" and I really have no desire to read the text..........I don't know why.
    Off the top of my head, I'd say maybe making the first letter bold and a larger font, might jazz up the paragraphs and make them more appealing.
    Could be the size, could be something else..........can't quite nail it.

    Also, you don't need two logos on your home page and especially you don't need two different logos (one with dots, one not).
    Stay consistent.
    Also, it is almost like you have two different names for your company with the Q4 Solutions name and the LTD name.
    Again, stay consistent.

    Great black and white graphics, they are appealing to the eye and they fit with your design.

    Also, on the contact page, since you aren't using a form........you may not want to have someone click on your contact page and then tell them to look down below and click on another link............just have a direct email link on the contact page.
    You don't need a contact link on your bottom nav and then right next to it, have the actual contact email.
    That is redundant and makes no sense. Lose the email address on your bottom nav and put it in your content on your contact page.

    On the contact page, I'd put the "for further info....." paragraph right where it is. Maybe a bit more text about things they can contact you about.
    Put your email and phone in the middle section and then put the graphic of the phone on the right (this will also keep you consistent with the rest of the layout of your site).
    This will give the viewers an easy way to spot your contact info (in the middle column all by itself) and not have to read through the text on the left.

    Hope that helps.............good luck.

    I checked the site with IE, and think it's a bit bland. You should look into using CSS for your layout rather than tables, and also you may want to define your background color. As it stands now, the visitors browser is defining the color, and that could make your site look bad to some visitors.

    The problem is not Firefox, or any other standards compliant browser for that matter -- it's the proprietary garbage, Internet Explorer, you're coding it for.

    I tried going to the website using Internet Explorer 6 and it still gave me the same error message as in firefox saying that I'm not using a supported browser.

    ASP.NET 2.0 produces far better code that functions, and validates, in all major browsers. One of the few things I took away from an ASP.NET webcast by Microsoft. Well, that and Visual Studio 2005.

    Don't ever block a browser. Even if it renders like crap, still at least let them in. It's not for you to dictate what browser a user must have to view your site.
