Fancy starting a new campaign with me? It’s a campaign of collusion for Web designers and it’s really pretty simple, I can’t believe that we’ve not thought of it sooner.
Here’s how it goes: we all agree to completely ignore the existence of Internet Explorer!
That’s it! As simple as that.
It will, of course, lead to conversations like this:
Client: That new site you’ve just designed, it doesn’t work in Internet Explorer
Web designer: Inter.. what?
Client: Internet Explorer. My web browser. Internet Explorer 7. IE7?
Web designer: IE7? Never heard of it.
Client: You must have heard of it. Internet Explorer! It comes installed on every Windows PC.
Web designer: It’s not on mine. Seriously? It’s called IE7? … nope! Really doesn’t ring a bell, I’m afraid. It must be one of those really tiny, unpopular browsers. We don’t support those, there’s no point.
That’s my dream anyway, and has absolutely nothing to do with my spending a week debugging some code in IE6 and IE7 … whatever they are.
