IE6 No More

One of the… no wait – who am I kidding? The most annoying thing about web design is the duty to double- and triple-check the design in browsers other than the one you are testing it for. For me that is Google Chrome, since I love the browser’s designs, functions, and its faithful support to standards.

The point I’m trying to make is that Internet Explorer 6 is crap. It’s pretty much the sole reason you don’t see websites all over that place that look like the Garden of Eden. By having IE6 used by people (and a fair share of the people at that) web design is hampered, and it’s every person’s duty to make sure it’s going away.

Therefore my themes will from now on feature a banner appearing at the top of the page if you are using IE6, informing that you are using a crappy browser (in polite terms) and that you should upgrade.

Don’t like it? Respectfully, up yours.
