World’s first ‘tax’ on Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 7

According to Ruslan Kogan this is the world’s first Internet Explorer 7 “tax”.

The Australian online retailer 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 a antique browser”.

The charge is set to 6.8% – 0.1% for every month since the IE7 launch.

I have only one observation to make…

Are there really that many stupid people in the world that use any version of Internet Explorer?

IE is the most ham-fisted browser available.

Netscape Navigator was the best, pity they allowed it to die.
