Too Cool for Internet Explorer

I must agree with a lot of people out there that Internet Explorer is uncool, boring and insecure.

To echo this general feeling, I have just added a small badge at the bottom-right corner of the Web page that reads “Too Cool for IE”. How I did it? I followed these instructions (Spanish) but to make the long history short, these are the changes I did for WordPress 2.0.4:

  1. Download too_cool_corner.png from here.
  2. Upload too_cool_corner.png into /blog/wp-images.
  3. Log in as Administrator on WordPress and go to Presentation -> Theme Editor and click on the Stylesheet link at the right hand of the page.
  4. Add the following code at the bottom of the CSS file:
    a#noie {
      position: fixed;
      right: 0;
      bottom: 0;
      display: block;
      height: 80px;
      width: 80px;
      background: url(/blog/wp-images/too_cool_corner.png)
      bottom right no-repeat;
      text-indent: -999em;
      text-decoration: none;
  5. Under Presentation -> Theme Editor, click on the Main Index Template link.
  6. Finally, add the following code just before the closing </body> tag:
    <a href="" id="noie"></a>

Cool, isn’t it? Oh, wait! Still using Internet Explorer? Then go and download a real Web browser 🙂
