When it comes to web design, I’m new. I’ve been doing it for about a year now. All year long I’ve been learning about web standards and today’s common practices. From the very beginning of this endeavor I’ve noticed that working with Internet Explorer (IE) has always been a hassle to me. At first I thought it was me. I thought that I didn’t know my way around development and that I was messing up. I found ways to work around IE to make it look good across most popular browsers. However, the fact that I have to take extra steps really pisses me off. Not that I don’t mind working extra hard. I just hate having to work extra hard for something that’s obsolete.
