Dear Internet Explorer user:

I have chosen not to support IE on this website. You will probably experience bugs and unintended behavior.

When developing IE, Microsoft opted for flashy features that weren't standardized, and pushed IE with Windows, hoping to monopolize the market. But as time went on they found themselves tied to a buggy browser that had tried new features that hadn't been picked up by anyone else, and were tied to Windows releases. The result is that IE works differently - and worse - than other browsers, meaning that a developer has to spend time and energy specifically making a page work in IE - time and energy that would be better spent elsewhere.

But every time someone loads a page with IE, it becomes harder for a developer to justify not supporting it. Therefore I am asking you to consider switching to a better, more modern browser:

The website as art form. I love learning, I love making things work. Into camping, tabletop RPGs, bikepacking, knitting socks, bike repair and advocacy, houseplants, and being pals.
