IE 6 is obsolete. No one programs to it's capabilities anymore.
Upgrade to IE 8 or install Firefox.

It should look OK in IE7/IE8 - we'll stick a warning message for IE6 users to use a more recent IE browser or to use Firefox.

Works fine in Konqueror 4 and Opera 10 as well.

looks like IE6 is out of luck. Unfortunately this is the standard web browser at work and I cannot upgrade.

Also, at home on my MAC using Safari 4.0.3, the icons are aligned, but the selection screen cuts them as seen in the screen shot.

It does not really affect functionality, it just looks un-professional..

Uh... that is the way the web wonders at ooma designed the page. Not sure why and I agree that it looks unprofessional - but I also have a problem with the way MTV jiggles around a camera during a head shot. I guess I'm just old school. Not quite a shirt and tie sort - most of my wardrobe is tiedyes - but I like icons that are fully formed. :cool:

Your IT department is not earning it's keep. They should have gone to IE7 long ago. Are you also running Windows 2000? IE6 is the last browser that Win2K supported.

I feel his pain. I was laid off in Jan from a large auto dealer group and at that time we were still forced to use IE6 for some of the auto manufactures online products that weren't keeping pace with new software releases. Flash and java were also held at a certain version number.
