It really sucks when a webpage works and looks good in every browser but IE, then you remember you forgot to put all the extra code for IE in your CSS and have to go back and fix it all. I've considered putting a script to detect what browser someone was using, and if it came back IE, having them directed to a page that said, "I apologize but this website does not support IE, mainly because for some reason or another Microsoft decided to make it the only browser that requires different coding to make a webpage look right." Then having links below that for downloading Firefox, Chrome, Safari...
