  1. Interesting site, but I disagree on the advocacy of crashing IE6. Yeah, it sucks, but a surprising amount of people (some sites quote 30%+, others nearer 10% – either way that’s potentially a lot of people!)

  2. …sorry… got distracted and hit post!

    A surprising amount of people still use IE6, and I’m not sure it’s good for that site to advocate crashing the browser.

  3. Yeah, too many people still use IE6. A better solution is to display a “Download Firefox” banner for those users. But it’s interesting to see that it could be done and how.

    BTW – is the “edit post” feature not working? Nevermind, it has a 3min time limit and your posts are about 9min apart.
