Inbox Compose Editor chides with Mozilla FireFox

The most elegant web application (http://www.inbox.com/) has two interesting issues that I observed. I have also supported trouble tickets to them. Just thought I would have a small brief review on the issues on most generic terms so that similar web applications can use this as a stepping-stone and a learning experince to circumvent such similar issues.

  1. Powerful Regular Expression AutoComplete slows down Internet Explorer heavily. Sometimes I get the message the script on the page makes it to run slowly. Your webpage might become unresponsive. The support suggests that to use Mozilla FireFox.
  2. Deducing from (1), when I use Mozilla FireFox, the compose HTML Rich Editor does not support full-fledged keyboard based shortcuts like CTRL+B, CTRL+C, CTRL+K. Mozilla FireFox triggers its web browser navigational widgets like sidebars etc.
This is one such analysis that we have to learn to address in our web applications, which we are increasingly pushing to be on latest state-of-the-art AJAX based technologies.

  1. Focus on the browser share.
  2. User-friendliness
  3. Best performance and fast loading webpages besides minimum load on the Internet pipe.
  4. Impact Analysis on bugs that we fix so that it does not hamper accessibility from applications or web browsers.
