Once HTML5 becomes the norm for the internet, pretty sure IE6 will finally die. I still can’t believe people use it though.

@dart: People still use IE6 because their corporate intranet-only “webapps” were designed to run with IE6 in mind, and it’s “too costly” to update them to function in modern browsers.

And, not surprisingly, they’re usually locked-in to some old Microsoft product that they can’t upgrade from without reworking the entire database, or some other silly thing like that.

@drudge true as it might be, this only goes for (some) companies. This does not mean that the employees of such companies can’t upgrade at home; It’s Microsoft that prevents that by not allowing less-that-legla versions of their OS’ to upgrade the browser. Also, it’s not a reason to support IE6. Not anymore.

@chibby: obviously, you don’t have to earn money by building web sites. as happy as we all were, would such stone-age customers not exist, the still do. and their money does feed us as much as that of the early adopters. so, sorry, there still are reasons to support ie6., at least in the industry.

@chibby That’s not true anymore. Anyone can upgrade IE, it doesn’t require activation since a few months after the IE7 launch. They did that just because of IE7’s low adoption rate.

I think we won’t see updates anytime soon, now that the new iMac is out.

Been a fan of the webcomic since #1 – just never posted as didn’t feel had anything worth saying; I don’t spam (or maybe a bit too lazy).

Every patriotic american have to love IE6! Else they might be one of the apple fanboy terrorists, supporting some evil canadian scheme!
