When your web site is tested on Sugar 0.110 with Browse 201.2 on

"Allow geekcrypter.github.io to


When I click Ok, a message appears

"Searching for multimedia plugins.  Python requires to install plugins
to play media files of the following type: text/html decoder"


then another message appears

"Required plugin could not be found."


Also, the web site has content which is sometimes centered, and
sometimes not, for example;


Please make sure you test your web site with;

1.  Sugar,

2.  the Browse activity,

3.  different display resolutions in the range of 16:9 aspect ratios.

Also, the web site makes fan start up on OLPC NL3, because of constant
35% CPU usage by the JavaScript animation, even if it is off-screen.

The OLPC NL3 is a quad-core N2940 CPU at 1.83 GHz.

On the other hand, the OLPC XO-4 shows no centering problem, and no
request for plugins.  The web site loading animation does not work.


The OLPC XO-4 shows the web site fine after loading, though with
similar 35% CPU usage.

The background image makes it hard to read the text drawn over it.
