Just saw this gem when logging into The Old Republic today. Would have posted the text of the article but there are videos that go with it and I don't think they are embedable.

XKCD has done something clever. Try looking at today's comic in different browsers.

Not sure it worked the right way for me in chrome. It tried making the comparison that Californians are used to earthquakes where people from Alabama are not, then tried to show the opposite example that Alabamians are used to snow and Californians are not.

It doesn't snow here, and when it does...it's a lot like an earthquake - no matter how mild, people freak the fuck out.

I got two different comics by checking the site in IE and Chrome. Is there something more to it than that?

Read the alt-text.

Also, I recommend Safari. It's the best one.

I guess I was just expecting something a bit more clever and complex. Last year every strip in the archives was converted into pseudo-3D.

Chrome:


Firefox:


Safari:


There's also a different image for the 2.3 Android Browser, while the ICS browser and Chrome for Android display the Safari image.

I don't get it. It's a different comic every time I visit the site, regardless of the browser I'm using. Is that the joke?

Yep, exact same. Harry Partridge. He also did the American Akira.

Oh...Oh God.

The romance video was the absolute BEST.

I'm impressed by the sheer number of variations.

It varies based on browser, browser version, geographical location, ISP, privacy mode and zoom level. Maybe other things.
