OT: What are these for?

At first, I thought they were glitches, but now I see that they're small gifs (circled). What are they for? This is the only of my favorite forums showing them.

It is a New Years confetti script thing that just doesn't display correctly in your (or mine) browser.

Click for full size
IE9 32-bit Windows 7 64-bit
Click for full size
Opera 12.12 32-bit Windows 7 64-bit
Is that in Opera?
Doesn't work for me either.
In IE8 or IE9 the new years confetti displays and is animated correctly.

Yup, Firefox/Waterfox. Boggles the mind as to why they'd go w/ an IE-only feature.

I would have assumed that it was intended to work in other browsers, too... but I could be wrong. Either way, IE is still the "most popular" browser in use at about 54% of the world market share, though I'd certainly expect that percentage to be lower for DSLR visitors.

Good as I thought my visual floaters had started appearing in color. Almost called my eye doctor for an appointment.

A small issue that I have with IE that I discussed with justin See Profile is the load visual indicators that do not work right in IE. Not terribly important... just completely inaccurate. You can see them captured in my screenshots. Opera works with the load bar as it should.

Remember that cool hidden "Graffiti Wall" here on BBR? After the name change I became the "owner", so to speak as it became: Dustyn's Wall »[Serious] RIP

That was my thought @ the time of posting. But it looks like the maid swept on through.
