Forum look with browsers

Is there a reason the forums look so much bigger in netscape than IE? The font size is set the same (yahoo looks the same) but the font in the forums is alot larger in netscape and makes all the thread title go to multiple lines.

I assume you're talking about 4.77. It looks fine (to me) in 6.1. I normally use IE 5.5. The obvious answer is Netscape sucks.

I downloaded Netscape 6.1 today. The column on the left with date/time of post, username, location, etc is skinny and the lines wrap more than they should. With Netscape 6.0 it looked fine.

How anyone else noticed this? Or are you too busy using M$ programs?

Snide remarks about browser superiority aside, I looked at the site with both IE 5.5sp1 and Netscape 4.77, and the fonts (and thread titles) look the same size.

Are you sure you have style sheets and javascript enabled in both browsers? In IE, is it set to View->Text Size->Medium (the default text size)?
