Internet Explorer 6 is old… very old. As of March this year the good news for web designers and developers like me is that major companies like Google are dropping their support for it. Most notably sites like youtube will no longer guarantee that their features will work with this browser.
For themers this is great news
We have spent hours of extra time making our websites work in this dinosaur of a browser (Nearly 10 Years old…shock horror) and since the amount of users in the UK is below 6% (i’m fairly certain most of these are in schools and very dated office setups that still run windows 2000) I know offer I.E.6 support as an optional extra.
Well what browser do I use then?
Fear not there is help at hand, and it comes in the form of free web browsers that make surfing the web a pleasure and are much more secure than internet explorer 6.
