    Internet Explorer Campaign Against FireFox

    http://www.levicki.net/no_firefox.php

    At first I was like "whut?", but then... i lol'd.


    This dude is on the wrong end of the spectrum, and needs to be kicked in the *** by w3c. He's complaining because he "zoomed in" while coding a website.

    At least with Firefox they're compliant with coding standards, in IE, you get sub par results that are rarely correct. Haha. What a noob.

    I find it really interesting I get this message: You have to visit this website using some other browser.. I'm using my work browser, so good 'ol IE7.
    Judging from the looks of what they are complaining about, they seem to have no knowledge whatsoever of how to actually use firefox (or likely any other browser). I'm not sure what they are whining about though, its not like their design is any good.
    Last time I saw a site that banned FF, it was on digg for like 20 minutes or so before it was dos'd down. Nice.
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm');

    Yeah, dear n00b: Feel free to use Opera, Safari, Konqueror, or whatever, nobody is forcing you to use Firefox. That’s why democracy was invented.

    I tried using IE7 on Vista to view it but it still said I had to use some other browser so it appears he is blocking IE7 on Vista unknowingly which is kind of ironic. Yet in his main site he has to jump through hoops to get IE to play correctly.
    Code:
    <!--[if lt IE 7]>
    	<script src="/iepngtransfix.js" type="text/javascript" defer="defer"></script>
    <![endif]-->
    <!--[if lt IE 8]>
    	<script src="/iefocusfix.js" type="text/javascript" defer="defer"></script>
    	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/iefocusfix.css" />
    <![endif]-->
    It looks like this guy isn't happy about the things in his life. He has some rants

    Lol. http://www.levicki.net/articles/rant...s_are_evil.php

    His rant about modal dialogs is hilarious. He complains that the shutdown dialog for windows is modal and doesn't let you do something if you forgot. I guess he doesn't believe in hitting the cancel button.

    If they really need to remind users that they cannot continue until they deal with some dialog or prompt then make it a topmost window with the ability to be minimized so it doesn't interfere with your workflow.
    Isn't that argument kind of contradicting? LOL

    This guy gives that other guy from a few months back with those crappy YouTube videos a run for his money.

    Oh yeah, I remember that one and this guy also reminded me of him, hehe. However, it also reminds me of something else: People that keep ranting about things in the internet while being ignored or laughed about by many other people worry me a little since the recent incidents (the one in Alabama and one in Germany at the same day).

    Its in his bio as well. I saw that but then read this
    I am self-taught and I learn quickly.
    I think its just something he likes to call himself. I figured that the no_firefox thing was what you get when you went to that page and it redirect you or something but now I see you get that when you go to his main site. I just changed my user agent. For the most part the site looks fine.

    Lol, what a guy. 'Software engineer', Intel Black Belt, and gets confused by browser zoom, shutdown dialog and about:config.

    'pre-emptive igor levicki' comments on that Microsoft's guy blog are funny too.

    I'm not sure his anti-FF campaign will take off...

    Speed isn't the deciding factor. I would rather have a fast browser with lots of features than a very fast browser with practically no added features.
