Epic Fix for IE6 Browser Issues

I’ve come across an endless list of IE6 hacks and apparent fixes for the one browser that still causes many issues. This on is my favourite:

<!--[if IE 6]>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx" />
<script type="text/javascript">
/* <![CDATA[ */ window.top.location = 'http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx'; /* ]]> */

Drastic, yet very epic and takes seconds to implement. Solves all your IE6 problems 🙂

  1. IE6 is a developers nightmare. I cant even fathom why anyone would use IE let alone IE6. Thanks for this though, Ill give it a shot

  2. To be perfectly honest, I’m very tempted to stop supporting it all together at work. I think this fix will solve all lingering IE6 issues on any website 🙂 muah!

  3. I got my first taste of IE7 CSS3 issues this afternoon with gradient backgrounds. Website had been up for 2 weeks and the owner finally decided to tell me that when you use anything older than IE9 the site displays a lime green > yellow gradient instead of a dark yellow > yellow gradient.

    Needless to say I wasn’t terribly thrilled to deal with it.

    Stupid IE

  4. I too am very tempted to stop supporting IE6 and simply providing a pop stating “you need to update your browser”. All in good time I believe that slowly but surly we will get rid of IE6 one day and then have the IE7 to concentrate on LOL. thank’s for this cant wait to try it out.
