I’m not a designer by any means, though I have done both print and web design work over my career. Though my CSS skillz don’t really get me any farther than changing a background colour or adding a border to a DIV, even I feel the absolute disdain that web designers have for Internet Explorer 6.
Hi, if you are coming to this site via Internet Explorer 6, you might not be getting the best experience possible. Honestly, I can’t even begin to think about what your entire experience on the internet must be like? (…probably like riding a bike on the highway while cars blow by you on their way to Costco to get gallons of mayonnaise and 60-inch plasma TV’s). How will you ever be able to use this website?????? You wont. You’re an asshole and your browser is an asshole. So look, I’m going to be honest: I kind of hate you. BUT we c-a-n make this work. Here is what I am going to need you to do: fire up your Toshiba ShitBook© that weighs about 45 pounds, wipe the Cheeto dust off the screen, download Safari ( http://www.apple.com/safari/download/ ), delete Internet Explorer from your computer, punch yourself in the face, and get me a pulled pork sandwich.
I couldn’t have said it better. If you’re still using IE6, you need to stop it. Even my Dad uses Firefox.
