Adam - Thanks to you and the Brulant team for helping to make this happen - we really could not have done it without you! I already miss you guys!

Hi Adam,

I have to agree the redesign is wonderful and seems plenty of work went into it. The only are that may need addressing is the lower left block "most popular at Borders.com for Safari 3.0.4 browser on a mac. The links are highlighted light orange. The artifacts that run into each of those highlighted areas are words that read.

In Safari there are also rendering issues with the Borders-Media huge banner bellow the magic shelf. The 4 circles and pause button on mac are being cut in half. There are 2 rows. The top row shows the left half, bottom row shows the right half of each of the circles.

"Books Music DVD" it seems the longer the link more text is showing up. I tested Opera, Firefox, in mac and PC. IE in PC and Safari on Mac.

That was my first impression when I first visited the site using Safari. That led me test on other browsers. I haven't gone deeper but I hope this sheds some light on the mac/win safari client base.

Great launch, best of luck.

Congrats to the Borders and Brulant team. No doubt a massively complex undertaking. The overall experience is quite intuitive.

Nice work folks

Got my $5 off coupon and immediately ran to the site to check it out. Had to smile b/c the site looks great and i could say "my high-school buddy did that"

Nice work.

About a thousand cuts

  • "Death by a thousand cuts" is just a great expression, isn't it? Anyone who has been through a tough project has heard it before. I like to think of this blog as the opposite. Navigating through all those issues to achieve excellence is a passion of mine, along with being a dad to three amazing boys and all things Red Sox and Patriots. Thanks to Len Devanna for pushing me to start capturing my thoughts and Lee Cullivan for the banner photo. More about me here. Thanks for reading.
