Fellas,

We’ve all been there. We needed a hack to get past a bug in a browser. Not pointing any fingers… cough INTERNET EXPLORER 6 cough so maybe we can all post some hacks, or links to hacks (preferably) that work well and create kind of a mini-collection here so authors can easily find them and use them right away, instead of taking away hours from their developmental process just to look for them.

Personally, I don’t know too many which means I always run into trouble once IE6 starts coughing up my code.

Thanks guys. :)

I usually don’t have to use too many hacks for IE6 , usually just the min-height fast hack and double margin fix if needed. I recommend Quirks Mode for any browser issues/information. It’s always very clear and reliable information.

Isn’t it just a huge nightmare how we still talk about IE6 ? :shrug: It’s 2009, web 2.0, css3, javascript frameworks.

It’s like we ride our new ferrari but our grandfather’s car keeps following us from behind.

:D I’m very curious to see the day TF removes the IE6 compatibility rule from approval standards.

I even heard of friends working in companies which still strictly require IE6 compatibility on any site development, until it’s marketshare goes down to 3%.

All I can say is many developers will rejoice once IE6 burns!

Actually, it’s more like we drive our new Ferrari but we’re stuck behind our grandfather’s old car. :)

yea, I guess that’s exactly what we’re doing but some of us are trying super hard to pass them but there’s some people out there who are so dumb and don’t know that technology has left theme so far behind.
