    Browser updates

    If a site you designed last year worked on the major browsers on PC and Mac, and now it doesn't work on IE8, would you charge to make it work in IE8, or do you do it for free?

    Thanks for any advice!

    You're going to do free work on your websites for the rest of your life?

    You made it work in all known browsers at the time (or whatever ones your contract stated). You can't be expected to redo sites everytime an updated browser comes out. You'd never have time to take on new projects.

    Charge them.

    You usually give a gaurantee for your work for a period of time like 30 days (for anything non obvious after you send off the finished product) but no you should not be expected to continuiously provide free maintainence for your work in the future, you sell the work "as is" and as such you cannot be expected to be held responsible for future events you have no control or knowledge over.
