Web browser icons.One of the most unfortunate things about being a web designer is that you can’t just design your website to work in one browser, or just one browser version for that matter, and be completely satisfied. Pretty much every browser has their own issues that you need to be aware of and the best way to become aware is to simply go through trial and error.

IE6 is the most stubborn browser to get a grasp on, but it’s not because there is anything wrong with IE6, it’s just because they have more strict compliance rules for making everything work together and properly.

I found a great website for being able to check your website in older browsers without having to have the actual browser version installed on your computer. IE Net Renderer is a great tool to make sure your site works in older browser versions.

You would think that everyone would be upgrading their browser as new free versions come out, but unfortunately I know of a lot of Countries and Companies that are still using Internet Explorer 6. Why? I really don’t know why. Do you know why?
