Collusion dream

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.
