Update Internet Explorer's look for 10.3
Authored by: hderycke on Mar 27, '04 08:19:55AM

Except that there are some sites that require Internet Explorer.
Like my employer's (employees-only) site, which not only requires IE, but actually closes your browser window if you have the gall to approach it with another browser.

Update Internet Explorer's look for 10.3

Have you ever tried Firefox for lame websites that require a certain browser? With its default Aqua theme it looks very much like a native OS X browser. Firefox is based on Mozilla/Netscape and a very fast and modern browser. To me it looks better than IE (which is declared dead by M$ anyway).

Which is when you turn on Safari's debug menu and tell it to spoof user-agent strings. ;)

Automatically closes the browser? That's a bad idea. Anything that behaves unexpectedly is bound to generate confusion, and maybe even cost the company lost time/productivity [i.e., money]. They should instead deliver a web page that instructs the user to use whatever browser, and do nothing automatically. Users will learn, after a few forgetful attempts, to use the company's chosen browser, and meanwhile there will be no calls to tech support, no wasted time retrying the site, etc.

...or, you could get the lazy web designers at your company to get off their lazy asses and actually create a page that conforms to OPEN standards and not "Microsoft standards."

It kills me when I see a page that "requires" Explorer -- when it's just sloppy, lazy web designers.
