Save the Developers

With the vast difference in standards compliance between Internet Explorer 6 and 7, and the recent announcements about even greater things to come in Internet Explorer 8, the time has come to get rid of the bane of web developers once and for all. That’s right: save a developer; don’t use Internet Explorer 6.

I wouldn’t even be able to start to count the number of hours I’ve spent fixing things for IE6, and as it’s been 18 months since it’s replacement was released it really is time to get rid of the old dinosaur. There are plenty of great alternatives out there, so make sure you upgrade – and make sure your family and friends (who you act as “tech support guy” for) upgrade as well.

Together we can fix the web.

  1. It would be nice to ignore IE6 but, alas, I don’t think it is feasible yet. At work we still have IE6 as standard, largely because a number of key web apps rely on it (BAD design, grumble, grumble, third party apps, grumble, grumble).

    As you can imagine, my ideal upgrade path would be to FF – everything I build for the Intranet is browser-neutral.
