IE6ify: a bookmarklet that breaks the web


There's a lot of rage directed at Internet Explorer 6 these days, including several very serious sites detailing the ways it's holding the web back and making designers' lives miserable. Sometimes rage isn't the best approach, though. Sometimes you need to have a sense of humor – or, if you're a designer who has to support IE6, laugh to keep from crying. That's where the IE6ify bookmarklet comes in.

When you IE6ify a site using the bookmarklet, you can see it breaking the webpage more literally than IE6 already does. Page elements shift and overlap, images are corrupted, and the whole layout generally just takes off directly for hell in a handbasket. The more times you click the bookmarklet, the closer you get to an experience as authentically horrible as actually using IE6.
