Well fucking done!
Fradow6445dI had the same situation play a bit differently a few years ago.
Context: there is a meeting with client company, several persons from there are here.
One says "website is not showing correctly on our company computer". Before we even have time to properly respond, another said "it's our company problem, we are still on IE6 ...".
No need to even defend the subject, felt great!
I love that response to making it work on EVERYTHING! You want support for browsers that don’t support themselves? Here’s a book.
Unai2235dWhy people is afraid of upgrading their browser? Such a nonsense...
Fradow6444d@Unai there used to be a lot of proprietary B2B extensions developed against specific browser versions, that would not work on newer browser versions.
Those extensions are core to businesses, and cost to make them work on newer browser is seen as too high (or there just isn't anyone to do that anymore).
That and crappy company IT that refuse to do updates because it requires them to do their job.
unlink464dHello, I can't seem to get your plain text to load on my IBM System/360. Could you please add an EBCDIC encoded version?
ajit5558422dHow much does it take to detect and show a polite message if app is not supported on that browser.
potata3792d@ajit555 Not much but you won't believe this - people don't really read those messages :) We've had other projects where we stated user what was wrong with all the details and steps how to fix it yet we still got around 10 live-chat requests per day with the same question. When we tell them that there is an explanation on your screen already - they all say that it was not there before... :) Just like kids searching for stuff and asking mom where is it - boom, magically it appears in front of their eyes :)
