Meta Refresh tag

Since I decided to stop using www.techhippos.net, I created a simple index.php with a META refresh tag to redirect visitors to my new site. This is what I used in my index.php file:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="10; https://www.learningpenguin.net/index.php" >

This works fine in FireFox, but in IE, it keeps refresh itself without redirecting to the new site. It took me quite some time to figure out that I missed “url=” for the destination URL. So it should be:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="10; url=https://www.learningpenguin.net/index.php" >

I thought IE is more tolerant than FireFox as far as the web standard is concerned, and apparently I was wrong.
