Excuse Me?! This Sounds Like an M$ Strategy

OK, some people have finally lost it. Brought to my attention by the post at http://www.edbott.com/weblog/?p=1307, trackback attached to this post, a small website called Explorer Destroyer is calling for discrimination against IE users. Bah, I say. If someone wants to switch to Firefox, they will. But blocking IE completely (this is Level 3 in the script) and forcing a Firefox download to view a site is crazy. And the site owner gets money for causing their visitors undue aggravation! One dollar for every referral. I smell conspiracy.

Update (12/12/07): I’ve revisited this opinion in a new blog post.


I am an avid technology and software user, in addition to being reasonably well-versed in CSS, JavaScript, HTML, PHP, Python, and (though it still scares me) Perl. Aside from my technological tendencies, I am also a theatre technician, sound designer, violinist, singer, and actor.
