Bye bye Internet Explorer

I ran across a story about Google implementing a program where they pay money to people who refer others to Firefox downloads with the Google Toolbar installed.

There’s also a nifty project called Internet Explorer Destroyer that displays a nice little page recommending you switch when you visit this page. For those of you using IE, I’m sure you’ve already seen it.

  1. This page seems to be horribly broken. When I visited your site using internet explorer I was allowed to fully view it without the page popping up. when I went to leave you this comment using internet explorer the page finally popped up saying that I was in fact using internet exploerer. however the link at the bottom that says “continue without firefox>>” does absolutely nothing. infact I had to change browsers just to leave you this comment. I understand the purpose of annoying people in order to both make money and stop the usage of internet explorer, however making your site unusable I think was a unforseen, and more than likely unwanted side effect.

  2. What version of IE are you using? I tested it to make sure it worked and I was redirected right away. The “Continue without firefox” link worked too.

    Also, if you’ve taken any of the security settings (especially javascript) off the default, that could be the cause.
