    New Site-Looking for your opinions

    I just finished my new site that I have been working on for the past couple of months. I was wondering if you guys could take a look and let me know what you think.
    I wrote all the page using CSS and no tables and validated all.
    I hope that the site is easy to navigate, comes across as professional, and gets is objective across to visitors effectivley.
    Let me know what you think.

    Site: http://www.hemisphere.net

    What are you viewing with? I viewed in IE.6, Mozilla and Opera and they all work correctly. They are drop down menus

    Yeah I’m with him. I click, nothing happens. Using Mozilla Firebird 0.7.

    Never shall the sun kiss my face
    And caress me with it's burning light
    For I dwell in the shadows
    And sleep side by side with death

    It's a javascript navigation.

    Not bad. I do have a couple of suggestions.

    First, your banner, including the navigation, seems a little scrunched down, as if it was created one size, then vertically reduced.

    Second, you only have one tiny text link back to the home page. I'd suggest adding a link to your nav bar, or making your banner a link, or both.

    Third, I'd experiment with a different font. Something sans-serif, like Arial. It is easier to read online & (I think) looks a bit more professional.

    My 2cts.

    Another $ .02

    Over all I Think the site is pretty good.

    I think your top bar is a little thin. The text would be ok if the spinning globe was proportional.

    I would think about adding some breadcrumbs to the site. This will help the visitor with navigation and will give them more links to work with.

    I might even use some diferent designs on the diferent categories of pages. ie... Have a template for Products & Services then a diferent template for Data Services and still another for Web services. This will make the visitor want to see the site instead of thinking that the site is just a few graphics with a bunch of text thrown around.

    Again, Just my opionion and we ALL know what opinions are like.......

    Thank you all for taking the time out and reviewing my site. All comments were taken and I have made some changes. If you all would be so kind to take a minute and see if the changes improved my site, I would greatly appreciate it!

    First I changed text to Arial, sans-serif. What a difference!
    Second I shrunk in my text. Much better!
    Third I redid my banner, no more stretching or squeezing!
    Fourth I bumped my text away from images, much clearer!

    Unfortunatley the drop down menu must stay per owner of the business. He likes them.

    I have viewed my pages in Mozilla 1.5, Opera 7.21, Firefox 0.8, and IE6.0 and all worked correctly.
    I have also viewed my pages with the following resolutions 800x600, 1024x768 nad 1152x864 and all appeared correctly.
    Again thank you for all your comments!

    At first I couldnt see the navigation either... however it seems to eventually load... if Not time delayed ( dont like that either way) Have those load ASAP!

    The globe is a little dark but you didn't make that

    OH one last thing... the company name do you need it x2 so close together? ALso if you are going to keep them close like that you should use a matching font type.

    Other than that good work

    Looks good...only thing is that in the drop down menus, the selected options turn white, which mixes up with the white background. Maybe pick a light blue? Also, I don't think the drop down menu titles should be underlined. They then look like links, not drop down menus. Good Luck!

    If someone who doesn't know much about the web, and goes by past experiences is browsing your site, they will likely tend to assume that when you hover over all links, your cursor changes to a hand. Therefor, they may not know that the items in the drop-down menus are links. Otherwise, good job.
