I Already Don't Like You™. Pretty Sure The Message Was Clear. I ALREADY DON'T LIKE YOUGO AWAY

Great article that touches progressive enhancement and designing sites for backwards compatibility. How far should you go? That’s always a tough question, and it’s always harder to answer if your clients aren’t as tech savvy as your audience you’re designing for (like “they keep sending you screen captures of their feedback from ie7” tech savvy).

I will say the over-arching message from this article is “Build for modern browsers”. We can’t move forward if we’re looking back. The market is too segmented with browsers and then browser versions on top of that. You can go crazy with cross browser compatibility. Just make sure it’s still functional and degrades gracefully. And also establish with your acceptable browser compatibility level and be sure everyone is on board with that.

And PLEASE don’t even try the headache of making it work for ie6, especially after the news that ie6 usage has dropped below 1% in the U.S. That browser is over a decade old. If you or your IT department is still using that browser in a regular capacity, you’re internetting wrong.

Just sayin’.

Who the hell is this guy?

Who the hell is this guy?

Oh wow, someone's actually reading this? OK, this is happening. My name is Alex and I'm a designer with slight anti-social tendencies. I'm black, live in the DFW metroplex, work at an ad agency, and drink alone in the dark on week nights. While being black, I write this blog as a creative outlet when not starting flame wars over the best episode of Battlestar Galactica (Gaeta's Uprising or The Final Five Revelation of course). I share interactive & design inspiration, the latest in pop culture, movies, and general nerdery.

I am currently unmarried and live alone. I make egg sandwiches and have no pets. I like eating tacos with no pants as well.
