This post is a response to a recent blog article I read:

I think I speak for all designers and developers when I say “good riddance”.  I will now show any client that requests that their website works on IE6 that article. We recently had a client that insisted their site work perfectly on IE6. This required a lot of extra time and effort, all for a minority of users that must be computer illiterate not to have upgraded browsers already. From now on we will not be supporting IE6 unless specifically requested.

I do feel it all comes down to the target market the site is built for; some websites still have IE6 in the high teens in terms of user percentage. Abandoning that much of an audience, might be detrimental to a business. However, as designers, we are constantly trying to make a business look the best in their field in order for a customer to trust and choose them when purchasing their products or services. By coding for IE6 this is almost impossible as the competitor will most like have a more exciting, user friendly and up to date website. You wouldn’t go to war with stick and stones so why take on you competitors with a substandard website.

As a newly converted Mac user, I am glad I don’t have anything to do with IE on my personal MacBook. I highly recommend to all you out there to use Mozilla fire fox, in the word of Steve Jobs “It just works”. Also, Adobe have an awesome browser tester, Adobe BrowserLabs.

This is the best news I’ve heard all week. I’m sure all developers can tell their own stories of developing stunning website and then having to (conditionally) remove a load of features and design elements in order for that site to work in IE6. Nice find!
