Stephen Thorne is blocking Microsoft Internet Explorer from his web site.
But why bother? On personal sites, why not just write standard HTML that validates, and let the browsers keep up?
There's a whole
new HTML out there. But when you go to the
CSS-oriented web design sites, you get "this
would be really simple and cool if we didn't
have to pull lame 90s browser compatibilty stunts
/dev/ass just to work with a
certain proprietary browser". Two examples are
PNG transparency and "rollover"
I've decided just to stop reading HTML articles when they get to "OK, that's the simple way, and here's the way that works with MSIE". I'll do the simple way and be done with it.
That goes for Netscape 4.x too.
