Internet Marketing Tips, Suggestions, & Ramblings

MSN.com Broken in IE6

Yes folks, it’s official, Microsoft has stopped error checking its own site using IE6:

IE 6 vs IE 8

So is this the final nail in the coffin of Internet Explorer 6?
Unfortunately, no, not really.

I despise IE6 as much as the next (sane) web developer, but the fact of the matter is: 15% of web users still use the ancient browser. Microsoft may not care about these people, but most site owners still expect their site to work well, and look good, in IE6.

I expect that in 5 years or so, about when Microsoft is releasing the IE12 beta, the number of IE6 users will be so low that we can all stop worrying about error checking in IE6.
