SabayonLinux homepage warning when browsing on IE7

Post by AmpLiF1eR » Sat Aug 25, 2007 22:52


When you browse the SabayonLinux homepage from a windows box with IE7, the following warning comes up: "Internet Explorer 5/6 is not supported. Get Firefox."

But I was on IE7, not on IE5 or IE6 ;)

also this is included in the warning: "We won't tell you to use IE 7.0 So get rid of this warning, change. How can you live in a world without tabs?? You're insane."

IE7 also has tabs :?

Because a lot of windows users have IE7 (even when they have firefox or Opera besides it), this looks very stupid, a 'windows user' sees this and thinks "You call me insane while what you say isn't involvng me ?" as a welcome message when they want to read about Sabayon :)

so , I would suggest to change that sentence in a more correct way :wink:

Funnily enough, I'm writing this on a PC (not my own) running IE6, and the SL Home Page and this forum look perfect. It's the first time I can actually read the new-format forum threads without having to screw up my eyes. Perhaps the monitor is helping: I see it's an LG Flatron L1719S. Never come across that model before.
