    If you use IE7 to shop, one company charges you extra

    Here's an interesting news item concerning older browsers:

    http://www.techguide.com.au/menu-new...explorer-7-tax

    Basically, this company charges a 6.8% fee during checkout for users who buy things on their site while using IE7. If users upgrade or use a different browser, there is no fee.

    It does make a little bit of sense to charge for something that sucks up a lot of development time.
