Are you using Internet Explorer 7 to browse the web? If so, don’t shop at online retailer Kogan as you may well pay more than you bargained for.
In a move which I am in full support of, chief exec Ruslan Kogan has decided to impose a tax on those users who still use IE7 in order to re-coup some of the costs incurred while optimising his site.
The charge is 6.8%, 0.1% for every month since the launch of IE7.
IE7 is now 6 years old and is still used by about 2.1% of people. Thankfully, most internet users seem to have wised up moved on to a more modern experience (although disturbingly 8.8% of people still use IE8).
Older browsers present problems to web developers who want to use the latest tricks of the trade to make their web pages as jazzy as possible, while still trying to accommodate those who use antiquated browsers which are determined to undermine all of their hard work.
