    Seriously? A browser tax? Many of you may recollect all the old chain mails that made the email circuit annually regarding an email "surcharge" for every message a person would send or receive. Evidently, we are getting a little bit closer to that reality.

    Whatever happened to the concept that web operators and designers, as well as browser creators, would all be compelled to ensure W3C compatibility? Even so, doesn't compatibility fall under "operating costs" and should be built into the costs of doing business and not be a tax on those users? Or, how about this novel option: inform your customers that your website is NOT compatible with the older versions. As long as you list the compatible browsers and versions, customers are less likely to complain.

    I support this concept. People who use IE7 are dumb and should have their money taken away from them.

    At the web agency I'm at they curse IE7 for the time it takes to adapt sites to it. A decision has actually been taken to make IE7 support an extra.
