Thats very interesting that the site doesn't load. What browser are you using?

I use all the newest browsers are no problem (Chrome 11 - Dev, IE 9 RC1, Firefox 3.6.13, Opera 11.01 & Safari 5.0.3) and they all work fine when loading.

There seems to be a slight styling issue in IE9 compatibility mode and Firefox 3.6.13 with the download buttons.

The site is built with asp.net mvc 2 and running on IIS 7.5. You should not have to use the default.aspx to load it.

Try a hard refresh Ctrl+F5.

Meh.  It's working now.  IE8, by the way.  Maybe I caught it during a reboot?

That said, it looks good.  The only other suggestion might be to have the MIME list be links to some backend information on each type.

Any ideas on what sort of info I could link to?

BTW what do you think about showing the number of items returned in the result?

Thanks. The points are yours, but would you mind telling me whether having the number of search results displayed would help.

It wouldn't hurt, but I don't think it's strictly necessary.  If I'm searching, I know what I'm looking for and am probably not concerned with how many similarly-named MIME types there are.
