View Thread: Thoughts on the trend to make web sites that do not work with IE ?

    recently I have seen a few more sites that are doing this:

    if you go to them with IE even with IE9 they just tell you to use another browser.

    while i totally undertstand the need to stop dealing with IE6 and get folks to update i personally think that some sites are going a bit too far....

    and i wonder what they are doing that works in safari / chrome / firefox that is so broke with IE9 ?

    for example:

    http://www.asana.com/

    if you try to use the web app it's broken in IE9

    or

    http://www.lauckstreetshipyard.com/

    has all kinds of issues with IE9

    if this keeps up will anyone use IE outside of some corp intranet soon ?

    I almost wonder if some folks have made templates that deliberately will not work in IE?
