Looks like just about everyone here, including IE 7, wants poor IE 6 (Internet Explorer 6) to go home and retire!
Some facts About IE6: IE 6 came out a few weeks before the Twin Towers fell. It came out before the Nintendo GameCube. It came out before the first iPod.So many people (including Govt. of Germany and even Microsoft themself) feel that it’s time to put a deadline on dropping IE6, and I say that time is now, and the deadline should be soon.
Often a website that looks perfect in Internet Explorer 8, Firefox, Opera etc looks a complete mess in Internet Explorer 6. This is because Internet Explorer 6 is completely behind the times, useless at displaying new technologies and code, and should basically be retired, buried underground or stuck in a museum. I don’t care where, as long as as we are rid of it. And while we are at it, don’t forget to check out the compatibility of your cheap hosting plans to other browsers too.
2010 is the year where we will finally see the protracted, convulsive death of Internet Explorer 6 and the collective cries of joy the world over will be well-heard as the Web as we know it finally gains the opportunity to move on and begin taking advantage of HTML5, CSS3 and the other exciting potential that has been forced to wait for so long.
