You read that right. Australia-based online electronics retailer Kogan has imposed a special tax on IE7 users, due to them having to spend extra resources making their website compatible for the web browser. Fortunately, downloading Firefox and / or Chrome is easier than ever. Continue reading to see what Ruslan Kogan, founder of the retailer, has to say.
One of the things stopping that is our web team having to spend a lot of time making our new website look normal on IE7.
It’s not only costing us a huge amount, it’s affecting any business with an online presence, and costing the Internet economy millions.
As Internet citizens, we all have a responsibility to make the Internet a better place. By taking these measures, we are doing our bit.
This will help us increase our efficiency, help keep prices for all smart shoppers down, and hopefully help eradicate the world of the pain in the rear that is IE7!
