    cool! they've got a Panther countdown!! :D

    i haven't been to for a while... i completely missed that.

    it should display right, it's only a gif. they probably did that for simplicity so that most people with any browser would be able to see it. have you ever had problems viewing Apple's site before?

    i'm not a web person (well, i do spend most of my day on the net, but i don't know about the technical side) so i couldn't really say what problems you're having.

    Also difficult with PC/Win/IE

    I also have problems when I start the page with IE (I have a PC notebook + win 2k). If I move my cursor over the countdown, the homepage is freezed and I need to relaunch IE.

    It has been like that since the countdown appeared but it's going better lately.

    I kind of check apple website all the time as I'm seriously thinking about switching. This freezing is the only problem I have found so far with Apple.

    it only happens when on on the usa Site, which is the firstpage you see when you type, but if i go to a store from another country i see the graphic just fine. with no problem. Weird, i know now it is not my computer.

    I know the very first few hours the countdown was posted it didn't work correctly in a few browsers and that was fixed. Although it works for me (IE for Mac, Safari, Firebird and IE 6).

    I just started getting a 500 Server Error when trying to connect to :eek:

    Well it uses Javascript so you can disable Javascript in your browser and you may be able to at least browse the site.

    I use an older version of Opera and it works fine for me.
