A better idea might be to just not worry about the bugs that IE users experience and have a notice appear on the screen saying "parts of this site might not work for IE users" if the user is browsing in IE.
Yes! God yes. I've started coding journal skins, just messing with it for dA, and haven't bothered to hack anything for IE - what's the point? IE doesn't work, Microsoft don't want to conform so suck. IE isn't the best, or even a good option, web browser, so why not do away for it?
Yeah I kind of agree. If anything, if websites simply didn't work in IE, it would shout to IE that they need to make their browser more normal. Not be so damn different to the point of making developers use all kinds of wacky work arounds to get things working.
This is true. I guess if everyone boycotted it for long enough it would fade out of existence of they would make the changes. Being so deliberately different doesn't really make sense either, I mean, what is the reasoning behind making people have to do a lot of extra work just to get IE do what it should do anyway...
It is really. I hold a grudge against Microsoft anyway and use Mac but from what I remember of using PCs in general it's all needlessly more complex than it needs to be and yet it continues to be the most popular O.o I suppose pricing makes a big difference.
Ha, well now I guess we could get into an OS war, but that's typically pretty pointless. People will like what they like.
Myself, I find Macs to be too simplistic. There's no easy way to adjust settings and whatnot. But then again, I haven't used a Mac consistently since version 9, and god, that was just a horrid piece of mess, version 9.
