Its never acceptable to see this text:
this site has been optimized for firefox browsers. please use firefox when using this site
But developers and graphic designers hate using internet explorer, despite the fact that half the world still does. We check the site in IE before releasing a feature, but we miss things, so please let us know if there are any bugs in IE or other less compliant browsers.

The geek half of me wants all people who use the internet to realize this fact: designers hate IE. The other half of me realizes that not all people are geeks, and places the blame on me. If any IE users out there are frustrated by something, let's talk about it here!

Amen to that! I spend more time backtracking and trying to make stuff behave on IE than I care to admit. But during development, I have FF and IE7 on one computer and IE6 on my laptop and look at the same page - it's the only way I'm able to actually get stuff done. And the sad thing, even though IE6 is supposed to be replaced, it's still about 40% of web hits to sites I work on!

I have had bad dreams about IE6.
