If you’ve been trying to read this site (or probably hundreds of thousands of others) in Internet Explorer 6 or 7, you’ve probably been seeing the entire site load just fine, but when it finishes it pops up an error box that says “Internet Explorer cannot open the internet site.”
It took me a while to figure out what was happening, but I eventually traced it to the script from Sitemeter that I use to track usage statistics. I had pretty much saved it for last, since I assumed they’d test their code to avoid, you know, breaking the Internet.
Lots of people are seeing this problem. I hope they fix it soon.
Note: If you’re having this problem on your web pages, you have to track down and remove the sitemeter code from your pages until they get around to fixing it.
