.josh Posted September 20, 2012 Share Posted September 20, 2012 ...I mean seriously...who the fuck are you to decide what's best for someone else? I am a creator of the web. Users come to MY sites to view MY product how I designed it. Use a fucking browser that works. And this right here demonstrates your failure to understand business 101. If 50% of your customers don't like mustard as the default ingredient on your burger, you don't tell them to suck it up, you take the fucking mustard off as the default condiment. Or you watch your customers and your paycheck walk out the door as they go to other places who cater to them. You serve the customer, not the other way around. Development / design are not hotdogs - there is no recipe. You have completely missed the point of the analogy, good for you. Users do not know what they want, nor how they want it, so your point is completely invalid. Wrong. A customer very much knows exactly what they want to buy when they go to your site, and they know that having to jump through 100 hoops to buy it sucks balls. Your site doesn't like IE and that's the browser they use? You are an idiot if you think that visitor is going to go download another browser to buy what they want from you. They will go somewhere else that does, simple as that, the end. And how many of those people you are basically calling idiots...how many of them do you think are going to tell all their friends "I went to xyz.com and it didn't work with IE so I left," vs. "The site was broken, so I left" ? You are an idiot if you think it's option #1. And it doesn't matter if they are wrong. THEY are the ones with the money that you just kicked out the door. "The customer is always right." This is a saying that has become a bane for many people, especially in the McJob industry, but not because it's not true - it very much is - but because some companies take it to extremes. Hint: catering to a browser that holds a significant % of the market is not taking it to extremes. There's a billion-dollar business out there who's (departed) CEO's mission statement was people don?t know what they want until you show it to them. Forbes And you have completely missed the point and context of that statement because you don't understand business. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
