Er, excuse me, back in the days when CSS was still young, IE was the 
prime browser to push CSS. So maybe you ought to thank them instead.

That IE doesn’t support min- and max-width is because the browser is 
years old, not because they have a dark scheme to harm CSS. I’m sure at 
the time IE6 was released the other browsers didn’t have the support of 
CSS they have today either.

Anyways, how is bashing IE on this list constructive in any way?
