denmarkw00t's Journal: World's First IE7 Tax?

Journal by denmarkw00t

In a move that will bring a smile to many web developers, along with pleas to their managers to implement a similar strategy "The Australian online retailer Kogan.com has introduced the world's first 'tax' on Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) browser. Customers who use IE7 will have to pay an extra surcharge on online purchases made through the firm's site. Chief executive Ruslan Kogan told the BBC he wanted to recoup the time and costs involved in 'rendering the website into [an] antique browser'. The charge is set to 6.8% - 0.1% for every month since the IE7 launch." Fantastic!
