Instead of 1) getting good folks to put feeble badges on websites, or 2) resigning to fate & cursing whenever you have to fire-up IE6 and check, or 3) getting bigger, better tools to do stupid things faster… Maybe we can be more constructive.
Here's an idea:
Dear Developers & Designers,
Save your sanity: At $0.00 cost to you, we make your website work in IE6!
Step 2. Just copy-paste this into your website's <head> section: <script src="http://weloveinternetexplorer.com/bff.js"></script>
Step 3. *chuckle* There's no Step 3!
How this'll work is that, all your IE6 site visitors will be gently redirected to our payment page, explaining nicely:
But you choose not to :-( you may install any of these free, modern browsers and use Website XYZ through them: [firefox logo] [safari logo] [google chrome logo]
If the IE6 compatibility work has not been complete yet, the above pay-wall will not be shown. Instead, we'd display a cool 1990s construction worker icon that these folks will be extremely familiar with!
All paid users can of course transparently continue to use the web site (and all other websites that uses this service).
PS: Designers & developers that would like to do Internet Explorer compatibility work (yes, all 3 of you out there, 尤其是中国的同胞朋友, Hội lập trình viên Việt Nam, and сотрудник российских программистов !!!!) Please contact me
