If it is my website, I do allow you to continue. It only shows a warning at first that says IE is not compatible with my website and it is recommended you download another browser to continue. I'll keep this warning for IE versions that do not work. Apparently IE8 works fine so the warning isn't shown.drathbun wrote:I recently (literally about 20 seconds ago) clicked a link in someone's signature here on this board that looked interesting. Instead of seeing page content I was greeted with a message along the lines of "I'm sorry, you're using Internet Explorer, so you can't view this site." In my opinion, that is just stupid. Not only that, it makes me angry.
While in idea that may seem the thing to do, in practice it wouldn't work at all. While it may be an okay thing to do for your personal site, try making that suggestion to the board of directors of a multi-billion dollar company, aka, telling them a that over 80% of visitors wouldn't be able to see the company's website.Lumpy Burgertushie wrote:maybe if enough people would stop designing for those non compliant browsers, maybe they would lose enough market share to get with the program.

There is a joke that on average a Web designer spends 40% of his time trying to make it work for IE and about 10 to 15% cursing and wishing imminent demise for Microsoft and Bill Gates.jaunty_mellifluous wrote:Yep; pretty annoying having to code for every browser!

It can't be called a "W3C standards compliant" browser but you can still browse the internet with IE can't you? I know it's a challenge, but still.LEW21 wrote:IE is NOT a Internet browser. It doesn't support basic Internet standards, so it can't be called a Internet browser.
