Are people really still using Internet Explorer 7?!?!
Online Australian retailer Kogan is imposing an additional 6.8% tax (IE tax) on purchases for “anyone who visits the website using IE 7.”
Kogan‘s explanation for the tax:
The way we’ve been able to keep our prices so low is by using technology to make our business efficient and streamlined. One of the things stopping that is our web team having to spend a lot of time making our new website look normal on IE7. This is an extremely old browser, so from today, anyone buying from the site who uses IE7 will be lumped with a 6.8% surcharge - that’s 0.1% for each month IE7 has been on the market.
