With geriatric Internet Explorer versions this site looks shite. This because Impossiblue is built with modern tools and would require hacks and workarounds to function in legacy browsers. I no longer have the patience nor the inclination to satisfy everybody. Impossiblue is an experiment and a playground – and my sustenance does not depend on it. As a concequence – to embarrass nobody – I have decided to lock you out. So, there.

The simulation uses the canvas element to good effect as small raindrops combine to form larger water drops which eventually float gracefully down the window’s glass. Yes, the glass is there. Look!
