posticon Taxed for using IE7


Helping to make the internet a better place for everyone! emoticon


INTERNET EXPLORER 7 TAX

It appears you or your system administrator has been in a coma for over 5 years and you are still using IE7. To help make the Internet a better place, you will be charged a 6.8% tax on your purchase from Kogan.com

This is necessary due to the amount of time required to make web pages appear correctly in IE7.

AVOID THE TAX, USE A BETTER BROWSER:

This story is more than a year old, so I wonder why I haven't heard of anyone doing this before. It would be nice to get rid of IE8, but IE7 is so much worse, and won't even do inline-block. You wouldn't believe how many hoops I still have to jump through for IE7, and I wholeheartedly approve of Kogan's action here. emoticon

Remember when I was trying to get things to look right with IE6? I eventually put Chrome on my computer at work.

Re: Taxed for using IE7


We stopped catering to IE6, as have many big sites like Google and Facebook, and even Microsoft is trying to get people to upgrade. We use ajax for some of our features, which IE6 can't handle at all.
