    Looks good although I'm not sure about the font of the text on your side navigation bar

    Verdana

    we weren't sure if we should make those items show up in the "login" space once the user is in, or put them on the side... we went with the worse of the ideas so thing could only get better

    Text could use some padding almost everywhere

    try something more simple

    That seems pretty simple to me. I tried making the expanding div thing like you said, and it made the pages look way to busy. :dunno:

    I dunno wtf was going on with the browser issue (i forgot about the problem). our dev site, www.dev.xubees.com doesn't see to have many cross-browser issues... might just go with that

    I still think you need something explaining WTF xubees is at the top of the page. To someone who lands on the site, the first impression they get will be some random ass store selling the most random assortment of electronics out there :dunno:

    agreed... we've been trying to think of the best way to incorporate that. Just throwing up a "how it works button" somewhere looks like shit

    Can I ask what functionality is required by non-safari browsers? I highly doubt its that important. I'd ditch the offending code for something cross browser compatible.

    You're good. :o

    Though i'd never completely block a user from accessing the site (especially a for profit site) Thats just nuts.

    Also, maybe i'm missing something, but what is the site all about?

    I don't know why, but your site makes me think of that fake internet currency created around the time of the dot com boom.

    I think it was called flooz

    design looks like its going in the right direction, but doesn't look polished in the least bit.

    as someone already mentioned, you need more padding for your text.

    obviously this is some kid of swoopo clone, check out their site and see what sort of design elements they're using and go from there...open both sites side by side, and ask yourself which one you would rather buy from
