WTF?!! Internet Explorer 7 'tax'
« on: June 14, 2012, 03:27:22 PM »
The Australian online retailer Kogan.com has introduced the world's first "tax" on Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) browser.

Customers who use IE7 will have to pay an extra surcharge on online purchases made through the firm's site.

This aggression will not stand, man! - http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-18440979



Ohh Jezzzz, what's that smell, man!!

I'm betting he'll be hearing from MS.
Even if he's just a little dude I'm betting that they will not want to set a legal precedent.

I work in IT doing government contracts.
We are almost 100% IE.
We have to maintain browser compatibility but the audience technically should be 100% IE.
Typically government workers are precluded from installing other browsers.
Sad but true.

Opera by choice, (though I am moving towards Firefox now) but my work PC has as many as I can find including safari, the joys of being a developer.

Damn, I allowed my inner Walter to come out due to someone on the forum I perceived as being undude. Only to immediately afterwards stumble on some words from a wiser fella than myself, the late cckeiser, and realize that I was acting in the very way I was arguing against. Thank you cckeiser for put
