Re: At least someone is doing something to eliminate IE6

:D. A lot of sites that have mentioned the name talk about how to game your user agent into IE6 and what not--I wasn't going to get into those details... lol.

Wherever you go, most IE6 users are corporate or government. They can't upgrade due to their intranet apps being hardwired to IE6.

Microsoft extended IE6 support to 2014 just a few months ago...

Despite numerous online campaigns calling for the death of IE6, Microsoft has confirmed their commitment to the browser until 8 April 2014. A post on the IEBlog states that upgrades are the responsibility of the user and the company will continue to support the 8 year-old browser:

The engineering point of view on IE6 starts as an operating systems supplier. Dropping support for IE6 is not an option because we committed to supporting the IE included with Windows for the lifespan of the product. We keep our commitments. Many people expect what they originally got with their operating system to keep working whatever release cadence particular subsystems have.

As engineers, we want people to upgrade to the latest version. We make it as easy as possible for them to upgrade. Ultimately, the choice to upgrade belongs to the person responsible for the PC.

Like it or not, Microsoft is doing the right thing. Windows XP extended support will continue until 2014 and IE6 was the browser supplied with that OS. IE6 support and updates will therefore continue for at least another 5 years. They can not and will not force users to upgrade.

There are two primary reasons why Microsoft had to extend XP support:

1. Vista was delivered 4 years late and has been slammed by the press and users alike. Many private users and corporations continue to use XP and install the free OS downgrade option on new PCs. Although Vista has improved, there is a general perception that it’s a poor OS and only Windows 7 will offer a viable upgrade path.
2. The rise of low-specification netbooks. Most of devices would not run Vista effectively so Microsoft offered XP Home as an alternative.

However, the company is committed to promoting IE8. Several of Microsoft’s own web applications, such as the new versions of online Office, do not provide official IE6 support (although they might still work, especially if they are Silverlight-based).

Does Microsoft’s commitment to IE6 matter? Probably not — it’s up to the web community as a whole to encourage browser upgrades.

Perhaps the "red flag" linux operating system, being actively "promoted" in China, will prove to later be a blessing in disguise for IDNs... as it's browser was tied up with Firefox and Opera (as well I think) at one point in time...
(i.e. helps whipe out IE6 and other browsers such as "The World" which skin and use IE6 as a backbone)... then we only need Baidu to work out what an IDN is and show them properly in search results

Cheers, Asiaplay
