Internet Explorer seems to be the anti-Sally Field, realizing all of the sudden that the web hates it. It really, really hates it.
Last week, an Australian online retailer fanned the anti-IE flames with a publicity stunt in which it promised to tax anyone who visited the site using IE7. Now, an error message from a music website called Rage Chill has stirred up some IE hate with the message above.
The message landed Rage Chill on the front page of Reddit on Thursday. In typical Reddit fashion, the comment thread showed a range of opinions, with some questioning Rage Chill’s move and others applauding it. “Joke is on Rage Chill, they’re missing out on a huge market of people who use IE still,” wrote one user,beener.
Another answered that IE was still 30% of the market, to which NaturallyKoishite replied, “These are all senior citizens though, I assume.”
Reps from Rage Chill could not be reached for comment.
