Favourite stack overflow answer of the day

"Don’t bother trying to make fixes for IE 5.5 and IE 6. These 2 browsers are the worst of all the currently used browsers - they almost completely break basic HTML and web standards. They are also 10 and 11 years old respectively - ancient, a millenium in computing terms.

Also, trying to implement support/fixes for these browsers is counter-productive to the spirit of technology, the web and most importantly your own time. We need to advance, not keep ourselves stuck in the past.

Let IE 5.5 and IE6 users enjoy the crappy experience on their crappy browsers. We are in the information age, the age of computers. There should be no excuse for using IE 5 or IE 6, period!

Don’t fix it!”
