This is perhaps the most awsome thing ever.

March 23rd, 2009 at 1:03 pm

I second that!

March 23rd, 2009 at 1:16 pm

and the whole page linkes to getfirefox.com – epic win!

March 23rd, 2009 at 2:17 pm

Not an epic win. it is an ASTONOMICALLY EPIC WIN!!!!

the astronomically is what makes it better

March 23rd, 2009 at 2:27 pm

And yet IE5.5 displays fine :S

March 23rd, 2009 at 2:44 pm

If FF weren’t such a memory hog I would never use IE6 for anything.

March 23rd, 2009 at 3:03 pm

what’s up with that Plater, why not IE7?
You still use first version of Firefox those times you use it?

But, how will I browse webcomic of awesomeness from work?!
You actually want me to work, instead of slacking off…
I hate you :( (Almost as much as I hate Norwegian keyboard layouts… viva la enGB keyset!) *Paints target on forehead*

March 23rd, 2009 at 3:45 pm

Awesome. Especially how IE 5.55 /does/ work* :D

*although it, obviously, makes a mess out of the layout

March 23rd, 2009 at 4:02 pm

not funny, rather idiot… you deserve much better than browser integrism, at least you look much clever in the past.

March 23rd, 2009 at 5:16 pm

i always install FF on peoples PCs when i fix them

I don’t use IE-anything, but I could give a rat’s ass what others use to view my content. Since ignoring IE6 users would require zero effort, this just comes off as infantile whining.

Looks good in Mosaic :D

Public service, crisatunity. Public service.

March 23rd, 2009 at 9:25 pm

Well all IE’s are lame and FF is totally great but *I* use Chrome

March 23rd, 2009 at 10:15 pm

Netscape 1.0. Nuff said.

March 23rd, 2009 at 11:02 pm

Netscape? What are you TALKING about?! The one and only way to view web content is to use Telnet or Netcat to make HTTP requests and then parse the (X)HTML in your head! That way you can be sure it’s done right, and you won’t have to worry about being patronized by some stupid rendering engine either.

March 23rd, 2009 at 11:17 pm

They way some people/programs write code, that’s a recipe for headache!

You know, IE days are seriously numbered, and Firefox needs to scramble to keep up (and I don’t doubt it can though). Cause Safari 4 is out! See http://www.apple.com/safari/features.html

Thank god for FF, We have to keep IE6 on our machines so we can develop for those still in the dark ages.

March 23rd, 2009 at 11:45 pm

Christianity, they care because they are web designers and clearly you are not. IE6 sucks at reading code so you always have to bust your ass more than necessary to make shit work on it. When people design websites they spend more time fixing all the bugs on IE than designing the whole thing. Using IE is slapping all the web designers in the face.

Only way to view websites is with “lynx” here is the SS http://bayimg.com/image/daoehaabi.jpg

Trying to get the splash page by faking the browser (firefox addon), but it is not working.

What is the user string for IE6 ?

March 24th, 2009 at 4:11 am

My FF misreads fonts and hurts my eyes. So I use IE7. FF is begging me to be a Microsoft person. Am I screwed?

March 24th, 2009 at 6:46 am

We have to use IE 6 at work, have to try it there :-)
And I am using Opera normally, best for me

Most things seems to be working fine in IE 2 – at least that’s what I’m posting from. (Hooray for ies4linux.org.) ;)

Madsen (still not the LG-one)

Jón Frímann, he’s using an IE-specific feature to check for IE 6.

Something only IE 6 parses…

Faking the user agent string won’t help.

Haha… Apparently HTML is stripped (not converted to HTML entities), so here’s another try… Sorry for spamming.

Replace ‘(‘ with the less-than sign and ‘)’ with greater-than.
(!–[if IE 6])
Something only IE 6 parses…

March 24th, 2009 at 8:49 am

Yup, simplest way :)

March 24th, 2009 at 11:42 am

If only I could code…. I am jealous. (i’d learn but I am far too lazy…)

March 24th, 2009 at 2:10 pm

No mr.madsen , I roll with the latest FF3. It just has a habit of pigging out I think it has to do with the in memory cache, I open and close a lot of tabs. But FF has a bad habbit of loading plugins and never unloading them, even if you close the tabs they were used in. (And no, I got rid of “Firebug: the original memory leak” a long time ago)
FF is using more virtual and regular memory then both of my visual studios COMBINED.

IE7 makes me want to vomit on my shoes and then rub it in my eyes so I never have to see that horrible UI again.

So its FF3 for fun, IE6 for work related things

March 24th, 2009 at 4:16 pm

Plater, just use Opera or Chrome if you need speed.
Heck, you could even use Safugly.
Firefox is a bit of a beast, but that is to be expected, it is a feature whore.
I <3 FF

@kyou – rather than getting hell bent on describing how hard it is to web develop for IE6, you might want to learn how to actually read and spell what you read.. You didn’t put in the two seconds of effort to read and write”crisatunity” correctly. How hard can you be trying at testing for multiple versions of multiple platforms.

I am a web developer and I’ve never been slapped by IE6, so your claims have proven doubly ignorant and idiotic.

March 25th, 2009 at 11:09 am

I’m at work. My work terminal uses IE6. This made me love life and hate work that little bit more….

Go forth with this idea. Free cookie if you pull it off. : D
