nice design...very clean look. The only thing I think hampering it is that your middle content seems to drag on a bit long. Feels like I scrolled for a mile. You might want to consider some kind of flask movie or something to present that content by the titles they already have. Otherwise, good looking site. I like it.

1. On the homepage there is just too much information.
2. The top bar is clean and has a fast mouse-over.
3. Your top logo above the navbar could be better.
4. I think you need an actual logo for your company. Not just the name.

Overall: 7/10

Looks nice and clean, the logo could do with being a little more attractive, split the info on the main page in 2 pages so less text & more room for templates.

8/10.

Ok. Nice Nav bar. Looks great. Rollsover fast, good effect. Except, don't make the rollover colour the same as the one on the side of the nav bar. Not very good.

One issue I absoloutely need to raise is the order you've positioned your links in the nav bar. Have Home as FIRST!

Overall, it's great :D

Ok. Another thing I would like to bring up is the quality of the pictures. They're starting to get fuzzy and blurry. Just be careful with that.

Wondering what the site looks like on a mac,

If you need to know what it looks like on a mac, then how will you know what your clients' sites look like on a mac?

Work on your pagerank. I looked up "vortex web design" on Google and Ozzu was the fourth match :-)

When I right click on your navigation bar, it loads the page. Why?

To answer your questions:
I have a friend of mine who uses a Mac, its just that he’s away on vocation at that moment but other then that I have 6 browsers here that usually tell me what it would look like but you never know. Most all the web sites that my company builds go through a lot of test before they are published to the net.

When I right clicked on the menu bar it took me to the page I was clicking on, I had no problem.

As with the Page Rank, the new web site was just launched less then a month ago, please give it some time.

Thanks for all the feedback

You need to follow Section 508 http://www.webaim.org/standards/508/checklist You can start with the basics like ALT tags to comply. Your forms are very Accessible well done.

As for the design the green bit of the nav don’t really match and could do with using white text on the nav? The Logo design could be much stronger and looks rather amateurish… consider using a modern font maybe even white out.

Thanks for the feedback,
Yes I know about the Alt tags, and there is much more to do with the web site.
I have been doing all kinds of things outside of my own web site, I have not had that much time to spend on the site.
A new header is in the works
Been updating my software and doing allot of accounting, everything just takes time, i'm happy just to have a site up at the moment!! there is only 24hr in a day.
I think I will stick with the green for the moment, some people seem to like it, so.
I do understand your points though, thanks

Hey I really like the site. But on FF I see right above the navi flash buttons on the top of the site, the black bar above it on the left is aligned correctly....but on the right its too long. Nice site.

But that is the problem. Right clicking is expected to bring up a contextual menu, not navigate to a different URL.

I do know what you mean; I just don't know how to fix it. The program that I am using to build the menu is new, so maybe I may have something set wrong, I would invite any suggestions?

I guess for me its hard to ask for help sometimes, I am a web designer and hate to say the words I need help, but what are forms for anyway? I will never say I know it all, because I don't. I am in the process of learning more about CSS, I do know some of it but there is so much more that I would love to know, Lots of questions. At one point I thought I was good at all this, went to college and after some work got a masters, back then CSS was there but not anything like it is now, then after being out of the seen for around 3yr there is so much that has changed but the truth is that if I don't ask I LOOSE and so do my clients and I cant let that happen,,, so anyway there is a bit of insight.

So now, does anyone have any idea on how to get out of using the embed statement? The tag name: "embed" Not found in currently active versions.[XHTML 1.0 transitional]

I do thank you all for your insight and help.
