No longer supporting IE6

close

Warning: This post was published more than 7 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 7 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

The recent update to the layout of this site means that it’s now effectively broken in Internet Explorer 6. Given that only a tiny proportion of my readers now use IE6, I’ve stopped trying to hack the code to make it work.

Previously, I’ve tried to make the site as widely accessible as possible, but the effort of making things work in an outdated, horrible browser has become greater than the reward it brings in terms of visitors.

The site is still viewable in IE6, but the design is a little messed up. IE6 visitors will see an advisory message in addition to the messed up site explaining that they are using a very outdated browser and pointing them in the direction of four good upgrade options.

I hope any IE6 users out there will understand the decision.
