well, it's like fixing IE6 bugs. i mostly double-code functions like
form-checks that are
again for the case
if you can't "double-code" some functions make sure the most important
in most cases
it's no problem if some effects don't work, but make sure basic
functions like form-validations
or whatever you call basic-functionality on your project works with
on the other hand (really depends on your project) it's ok inform the
user that he has to turn
i guess it's a matter of taste. i remember sites warning the user if
he used an old browser,
or sites that alert users that "this site is optimized for <insert
browser name> here". i prefer
sites that make use of standards and work on (nearly) all browsers.
see how they handle it :)
imho: have some kind of fallback and make sure basic
my 10 cents.
