I’d been recently involved in a discussion about Internet Explorer 6.

Should us web designers still apply all the tricks and hacks we’ve been using since 2001?
My answer is: God no!

Since Google stopped supporting IE6 and YouTube followed them as well (no surprise!), IE6 users will suffer every time they want to use anything advanced on the Internet. Google Docs: nope, won’t work! YouTube: nah, not watching videos here, mate.

I am thankful that the day has come. We’ve been waiting for 9 years! Oh and no, I don’t care if anyone accesses my websites using IE6. I can only hope that the disappointment experienced here, on YouTube and on Google’s sites will finally make them start using a better browser.

PS. I use Chrome for everyday browsing and Firefox for web development.

    Good man! :)

    And yes, Google owns YouTube. That’s why I said “no surprise” ;)
