And so the tables turn

Ben Goodger, main Firefox dude, is now blocking users of IE, citing standards compliance.

The browser you are using (Microsoft Internet Explorer) is not supported at this time due to incomplete support for web standards. By using Microsoft Internet Explorer you are making it difficult for web content providers to give you a better internet experience because they must design material for the limited functionality that it offers.

Please upgrade your browser today and enjoy the web as it was meant to be!

Get Firefox

I'm not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, I'm sick of all the IE-specific crap on the web. OTOH, Ben will probably turn off more people than he draws in. Maybe a better way to approach it would be to give a cut-down version of the site, with a header or footer reading "See this page in all its glory with Firefox!"

I see Ben lets Opera in, but displays a similar message at the top of the page (basically, what I had suggested above)
