I've made a few tweaks for jailbroken iOS.

btw, IE9 looks exactly like all the other browser I listed, so if that's how it's meant to look you can add except IE9 to your "question"

Well it actually happens on Chrome 7.0.517.17, Firefox 4b6, IE9, and Opera 10.61 looking at the source I see that that it's all set to 500px width, Nothing like the image you posted above.

There is a problem, it does stretch 100% of the width, making the labels cover the entire graph

comment SVG Versions of the Logos
Couldn't you have a link to these in the stackauth.com/sites, along side the apple icons, which are great but don't look great when resized.

No I really don't think that site_color will prompt requests for other colors, and you can just not implement them. If I want I can just go and get what I call the site's colour using a HTML Parser and just waste more bandwidth. I did say this in an edit of my last comment but it didn't get posted: The colour is not to say exactly which site, but to help. It is very easy to tell the difference between a SO and cooking question, but not so easy between a SO and SU question. The colours don't have to be completely unique but it would be better if each site has their own unique color.

Well if you don't call it "button_color" and just call it "site_color" then people won't ask for other buttons (you can also say no).

If I wanted to copy the look and feel of the site I'd need a lot more than the colour of a selected button

It's just that a favicon would really not fit in that well, I guess I could just get the colour manually as it's only a 50x25px ish rectangle that I want to colour in, If my app looks to official you could just remove the API key, blocking the app till I change it, if I was a difficult person.

comment Rather than remove site from /sites set status close, at least temporarily
But stackusers.com isn't continually checking the API is it?

comment Rather than remove site from /sites set status close, at least temporarily
Right i didn't really understand what you just said, but effectively it's easier for sites to miss out a site than it is to get a state variable wrong? As it's easier to miss something out than to return the wrong value. I have not much idea of trnasient and salient mean or about the example you gave hut that's more for kevin I guess.

Errm, I'd thought it was more important to let the user know that a site has been closed. The user thinks WhTF is gadgets? At least if there was site status=closed for a few weeks (or w/e) an app could have banner (etc) saying that gadgets has been closed.
