Web Standards Shit List Update

Microsoft just keeps making this shit list better and better. We now get a chronological view of the 3,135 sites in an Excel sheet (hey, at least they released it - maybe one of these days they'll find out what the fuck HTML does), when they piss off enough of their users to make it onto the list, and when (and if) they beg Microsoft to remove them.

For the record, a few sites have already removed themselves from the list, most notably Flickr and Yahoo! (redundant, but still big enough in their own right that they can get separate mentions).

Nice Blog! Found you after wasting a day mucking around with an IE bug.

Curios why you have so much hatred of IE6 when, in my opinion, IE7 is hardly any better. For that matter the difference between 5.5, 6 and 7 is so small I haven't had a compelling reason to differentiate one from another until IE8 came out.

Anyway, I hope there is a special place in hell reserved for anyone associated with the development and propagation of Internet Explorer.

Good day.

DWARG: Trust me, my hatred of IE6 in no way diminishes my hatred of IE7. While IE7 brought some much-needed improvements to the overall piece of shit browser, it introduced all sorts of new fucked-up-edness, prolonging our pain for many, many years...

IE6 just sucks even more than IE7, and we actually have a chance to finally stop supporting that ancient, broken, piece of shit sometime soon. Hence the general, recent explosion of pent-up hatred against that specific version.

IE is a virus vector disguised as shitty browser.

Mozilla stands for "Mosaic Killer" and unfortunately it has yet to meet it's named objective.

PS: I've graduated and gotten a promotion at work that means I don't have to deal with IE EVER AGAIN! mwhahaha

After around 10 years of hard work, IE 8 still can't render correctly PNGs with alpha. Seems that you cannot fadein/out transparent PNGs. Please Microsoft, hire human programmers instead of monkeys, they are still evolving. Transparency exists from the days of DOS... please!

Heros: IE7 can, unless you mean CSS opacity on a PNG? Got a test case?

Yes, exactly. You cannot change opacity/alpha via CSS to PNG with transparency with IE 7/8. That works with any other browser.
