Saying no to IE 6

Edit: Whoa! savethedevelopers.org now links to Microsoft, and the script is gone!  What gives?  Buyout? Hostile takeover?

 

IE 6 visitors to this site will notice a message sliding down from the top of the page directing them to update IE. This is a script provided by savethedevelopers.org who are all about making IE6 go away. Bravo I say. That said, I’d be happy if it directed users away from IE altogether (because it sucks; even the U.S. government is ‘pleading users to stop‘ using it) but – one step at a time.

Visit their site to grab the markup for the script if you’re interested in supporting the cause from your site too. Save a developer today!

    hey,

    we are using your theme, which is awesome by the way, for a site and are having problems with people commenting. I think it is tracked down to people with IE. . . could you send me the code to put in there to send them to upgrade their IE or to get another browser?

    Thanks,

    Hi David,

    Glad you like the theme! Are you definitely using the latest version? There was an issue with the ‘Submit’ button for the post form being hidden, but that’s resolved now.

    But please do join our little revolution ;) The script is on the front page of savethedevelopers.org

    Given that I can’t actually access their site right now, I’ll post it here too:
