Can't wait until they get sued by old people and Microsoft.
are they allowed to do this?
They're probably just trolling to get people to ditch the damn thing. But seriously, what are the chances of people using IE7 buying from their site?
That's hilarious. Thank god I have a 4GB flash drive with Google Chrome and Firefox installations on it so I never have to use IE.
"We don't like money. Go away."
Or people could, you know, upgrade to IE 8 or 9. Both are much better than IE7 anyway...
IE7's a minority, I doubt this will nearly kill their profits.
But hey, it's good to see a company risking pushing some customers away to make some progress. IE7's over five years old.
Youtube and other such sites already display warnings, this is just a more stern way of doing it.
I had a customer ask me specifically to install IE7 on his PC last week.
The world is a weird place.
Yeah, sure, "progress", but they didn't have to be passive aggressive douches about it. "Hey, instead of displaying a notice that IE7 will no longer be supported, let's keep supporting it, but be whiny about it."
IE7.... people still use IE6
Sometimes you have to raise a fuss to get shit done.
Its called free publicity......we no longer live in a world where we have news any more. It is now "News Entertainment " kinda like the WWE
Maybe this will finally get people to stop using IE and use a better web browser.
The first time I saw this I laughed so hard!
This sure is just trolling, I bet they will never tax anyone!
I love Kogan :3 Poor people that are old and use ie7
But there's a difference between "raising a fuss" and "being a temper-tantrum-throwing brat in the candy aisle".
Choosing to charge extra to the people who use outdated software (that's a royal pain in the ass to support, if you didn't know) while letting them know what's up and offering to let them change so they don't have to pay extra. Considering how much of a pile of shit older IE versions are in web dev eyes, this is rather tame... and it's better for the consumers to be using modern browsers as well.
A store charging extra to people who cause the store extra hassle. I see nothing wrong with that, and it's done all the time outside of the web.
Wow! Even more people shot themselves in the foot!
I'm just more shocked that people still use IE7.
