Apple Trying To Poach IE6 Users

Attempted to watch the Transformer’s 3 trailer, but apparently Chrome on Linux was a no-go for the JavaScript which hides the web site and displays the trailer. Fancy but broken. So I thought I would look at the HTML and get the .mov file. I found this snippet of code in the HTML quite interesting.

<!–[if lt IE 7]>
<div id=”ie6-message”>
<h2>You are currently using an outdated browser.</h2>
<p>Please upgrade to a <a href=”http://www.apple.com/safari/”>modern browser</a> to fully experience this site.<p>
</div>

Where most places would have someone upgrade to a newer version of the software they are currently using, Apple is trying to poach Microsoft users. Bravo! Bravo!
