IE6

Is it time to kick older versions of IE to the curb?

What does a perfect world look like?

If you’re a web designer or developer, chances are your perfect world is a world free of older versions of Internet Explorer.

Despite the popularity of Chrome and Firefox, and the proliferation of non-Windows mobile devices, Microsoft’s web browser is still used by countless millions around the world. Depending on what you’re building and what versions of IE you’re required to support, that can mean big headaches.

IE6 is almost dead in the US

Known for its lack of support of web standards, as well as a seemingly countless number of security issues, IE6 may be the worst web browser ever created.

Yet it has also been resilient thanks in large part to the fact that it was the default browser shipped with Windows XP.

But the browser that can’t die soon enough is finally dying.
