Goodbye, Internet Explorer 6


I just realised:

  • Rubenerd started using Let’s Encrypt SSL certs, mostly because this site is one long, over-engineered experiment.

  • All HTTP requests are redirected to HTTPS

  • My cipher suite doesn’t include support for Internet Explorer 6

Therefore, Internet Explorer 6 users can’t get here. Which means no more IE6 CSS hacks!

I kept the IE6 hacks around because I knew them off by heart, and my design is simple enough that it wasn’t much effort to include anyway. This finally gives me the impetus to remove these entirely.
