Here's the supposed "best footer ever" so you know what we're talking about:
Hi, if you are coming to this site via Internet Explorer 6, you might not be getting the best experience possible. Honestly, I can't even begin to think about what your entire experience on the internet must be like? (…probably like riding a bike on the highway while cars blow by you on their way to Costco to get gallons of mayonnaise and 60-inch plasma TV's). How will you ever be able to use this website?????? You wont. You're an asshole and your browser is an asshole. So look, I'm going to be honest: I kind of hate you. BUT we c-a-n make this work. Here is what I am going to need you to do: fire up your Toshiba ShitBook© that weighs about 45 pounds, wipe the Cheeto dust off the screen, download Safari, delete Internet Explorer from your computer, punch yourself in the face, and get me a pulled pork sandwich.
Funny? Yes. Accurate? Maybe. Best footer? No.
Footers are at the bottom of a page for a reason. That's where unimportant things like copyright info and footnotes go. 68% of the internet uses Internet Explorer. If you've got a beef with 68% of the people who use your site, you should be a little more upfront about. Try putting that in the header of your website and see how much people like it.
