cell phone if you have one? 10 years maybe? Remember when Nokia was all the rage? It’s old isn’t it? It doesn’t work as well as the newer phones. It doesn’t have as much functionality as the newer phones.
What about your computer ten years ago? Do you still have it now? Doesn’t work as good as today’s computers and probably with less functionality. Do you still have a floppy drive?
What is my point?
Internet Explorer 6 was released in August, 2001. This year would be its 10th year anniversary. It is time to put it to rest. It’s old. It doesn’t work as well as newer browsers and it doesn’t offer as much functionality, especially with CSS. There are hundreds of security flaws. Internet Explorer 8 is available now. It’s time to keep up with the times, especially when it’s free. That’s why I don’t support IE 6 when coding. If you want it, be prepared for additional costs because yes it will cost you. If you don’t want to support IE 6 and want others to get on the wagon for a better usability and viewing experience, I can add a conditional comment for those viewing on IE 6 and earlier to update.
