IE rejection - I applaud you guys for doing this

I had to open up IE (something I rarely do) and spotted this:

If every website did this sort of thing it would force them to stop side-stepping standards which causes all sorts of headaches in the industry.
Well done...

(P.S. Where can I get the code do implement this on my site?)

Glad you like it :) It was a long conversation whether or not to support IE6 and after weighing the metrics and the options, we decided this was the best route.

We're firing some javascript in IE conditional tags at the bottom of the page; something like this:

Code: Select all

<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<script type="text/javascript">stop_ie();</script>
<![endif]--> 
but there are many different ways of achieving the same result. There are plugins for most JS libraries that perform similar functions as well.

cheers :)
