Today I was sitting in Josh Bersin's kitchen. He got a conference call. I switched on his computer and started grabbing the news. Then I dropped by this site just to see how it looked in IE, which I'd given up for Mozilla and Opera, each of which has its strong points but both of which are miles ahead of IE.
Damned if my site didn't look goofy. The blog column was overlapping the navigation column. Argh. IE interprets tables in a non-standard way.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know good practice calls for testing one's site with a variety of browsers. In my case, I'm author, coder, webmaster, smut eraser, and graphic artist on a site that is continually changing shape and pushing the envelope. I'd rather see Microsoft go along with standards than force tens of millions of us to create workarounds.
Jay's justice: If you are convicted in Federal court of cutting off a competitor's air supply, you are obligated not to abandon your product for at least five years after killing the competitor. Nor are you allowed to collude with the purchaser of the former competitor's acquirer to bury what's left. Nor are you allowed to violate court order by incorporating the product back into your operating system to retain your monopoly.
That's just my opinion. I might be wrong.
