Best wishes for 2010 … more time for you, your families + friends 🙂 … and a slow and painfull death for IE6!!!
IE6 (Microsoft Internet Explorer – version 6) tortures thousands of web-developers for years. Every web-interface needed a lot of “special hacks” to be rendered reasonably on IE6.
Think of the IE box model bug, the CSS underscore hack, the <!–[if lte IE 6]>-like Syntaxes for including js or css only for IE6, IFrames to cover select boxes when using a absolutely-positioned div, etc…
The statistics of Factureaza.RO show the following trend of IE6 usage:
- june 2009: 21%
- july 2009: 22%
- august 2009: 19%
- september 2009: 17%
- october 2009: 18%
- november 2009: 18%
- december 2009: 17%
- january 2010: 16%
Let us put an end to this agony and join the guys at end6.org. Just include the piece of JS offered by them – and your visitors will be advised to upgrade ther browser.
<!–[if gte IE 7]>
