OK people, c’mon. Did you know that Internet Explorer 6 has been around since 2001 when Windows XP was released?! It’s been eight freakin’ years and now that we are a full two versions beyond this – IE7 was released in 2006 and IE8 was just officially released a month ago!
Yet all these computers around the world are still using an outdated and admittedly buggy browser. It’s adding a bunch of overhead to our design work because we have to test in THREE different versions of IE before we even get to testing in Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera, yadda and some yadda. And what comes with more overhead? You guessed it, MORE COST! You don’t want more cost, do you? Especially since you generally have an attitude that everything on the web should be free. (go figure) So let’s just bring down cost and upgrade to a state-of-the-art, working browser.
Here a link that will make your life easier: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/Internet-explorer/default.aspx
Now click it and install the freakin’ thing.
And if you just plain don’t agree with my sentiment: http://www.saveie6.com/index.php but before you think of joining their cause, I urge you to think of the web designer who has to deal with you and your pain-in-the-ass remarks that his work is too expensive even though you refuse to join the rest of humantity and upgrade.
