Gap.com: We’re Sorry

Gap.com is temporarily closed. I find this interesting that a major online retailer would choose to go offline instead of some sort of better organized roll out of new services. They must be losing money like crazy. If I had suggested that this was an expectable solution on any of my e-commerce site I’ve managed I think I would have been fired.

So the Gap was offline for something like 24 hours 2 weeks to upgrade their site. Now that it’s online I get this very friendly error message:

“We’re sorry, treatment but we do not support the version of the browser you are using.
Our site works best with the following browsers:

PC users
Internet Explorer 5.5 and above
Netscape 7 and above

What the hell has happened to good web design? There’s nothing on the site that needs to be restricted by browser. I thought that thanks to web standards these types of things were a thing of the past. I don’t know whose developing their site for them but they are dumber then rocks.
