Hey friends, This is a call to arms to make Windows XP users move away from Internet Explorer. This is necessary to allow us to make the web a richer and more enjoyable place.

see here : http://html5forxp.com/

A website promoting HTML5 which would display just fine with IE5 . Seriously, if you are promoting HTML5 , you’ll need at least to use some HTML5 functionality with some nice design.

From html5forxp:


<div class="aside"><aside>
[...]
</aside></div>

+


<div class="footer"><footer>
[...]
</footer></div>

SportTipsWorld said it best. Furthermore, I haven’t seen anyone succeed in educating people by creating a “call to arms” site when it comes to the browser issue.

If you really want to try and fight this “problem”, educate your clients :)

Good point. Why would you advertise HTML5 with a website that looks like from 1992? :)

But yeah… people should have no mercy with Internet Explorer… because his version is limited by the OS version you are using.

Uhh, just to point one thing out. There is no hardware acceleration or opengl support anyway in XP in all browsers, so there isn’t any reason to do the switch unless you force people to change their operating system.
