Since 21.05.2004 AniDB enforces gzip compression of all text content.There are many old (e.g. Netscape 4) and broken (many IE versions) browsers out there which can't handle this correctly. It might also affect you indirectly if you're using a proxy server which is not gzip compatible.

A possible fix is to check the following options in IE option, advanced tab:

  • Use HTTP 1.1
  • Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections

Generally whenever you have issues with AniDB you should first try another browser.
Recommendations:

You shouldn't use Microsoft Internet Explorer or any of its derivates (i.e. MyIE, Maxthon or stuff like that) for this site (or any other site on the Internet, for security reasons).

NOTE: Microsoft Internet Explorer is NOT supported by AniDB!
AniDB may work with it, but that's untested and unsupported.
NOTE: If you insist in using Internet Explorer, be advised that the very minimum version that will have any chance of having stuff being tested on is IE7, and we note that IE8 should work considerably better.
