Google Has A Solution For Internet Explorer: Turn It Into Chrome
That's both clever and evil. It's a plugin for IE which is the Chrome browser. Like the IETab plugin for Firefox, except backward: it allows people to switch from using IE to using Chrome without having to learn to click on something other than the big blue "e".

Much Ado About IE6 » Digg the Blog
Digg did a survey. Nearly all of their visitors using IE6 are doing so because they're required to by their work. Maybe if all web designers just stopped supporting IE6 the companies would upgrade and we could all be much happier?

How to make images scale smoothly in IE6.
Apparently Microsoft chose a very poor algorithm as the default for scaling images in their browser, but there's a nonstandard CSS extension that will switch to the better algorithm.

Internet explorer mystery #1376: Ned Batchelder
Technically, it's a bug in Firefox: Firefox does something sensible but the JavaScript language definition requires something completely ridiculous. Either way, it's an interesting bit of JavaScript knowledge about hoisting. [...] Later, in response to many other comments, we find the true answer: the ridiculous case is undefined in JavaScript (technically, it is illegal but it not required to be a syntax error). Firefox's choice of how to interpret it is far superior.
