Tell Us What You Really Think

SocialThingI know developers tend to have favorites when it comes to browsers, but they typically play nice by ensuring their applications work in at least the major browsers (IE, Firefox, Opera and Safari).

So I found it refreshing (and yet a bit arrogant) that socialthing not only decided to forgo browser compatibility, they even decided to use the little 'IE = NOT!' sign.

Of course it says, 'We don't support that yet!' but do you really think they will support it?

If you don't take the time to support it along the way, what's the use trying to retrofit your site to support it later?

I guess they can just thank their lucky stars that IE8 passed the Acid2 test and will support web standards on a much stricter level.

I know I'm looking forward to it.
