2001, the year of 911 – Twin Towers, and IE 6.
IE 6 is seven years old today. Amazing how time flies. “2001, a browser’s Odyssey”. Where were you on August 27, 2001?
IE 6 is still the base-line browser I need to develop against, unfortunatly. When will we get rid of it? People (developers) have been trying though:
- Google promoting Firefox.
- Explorer Destroyer.
- Stop IE6.
- End 6!.
- WordPress with Browse Happy.
- IE Death March
But you can’t deny the facts, it’s still a popular browser.
But the biggest concern shouldn’t be that it’s a bad browser development wise, but its lack of security for the every day user.
