Save a Developer. Upgrade Your Browser.

By Deane Barker on March 25, 2008 :: Making The Web A Better Place: Dear God, please save us.

Say no to IE 6! Our current campaign focuses on assisting users in upgrading their Internet Explorer 6 web browser. This campaign will result in former IE 6 users having a more enjoyable experience on the web while (hopefully) creating a less stressful and complicated environment for web developers by hastening the retirement of an outdated browser.



  1. Sadly, many large employers, mine included, continue to stick with IE6 as the standard.

    Why is this, I wonder? I have two large corporate clients that I built intranets for, and both of them are stuck in IE6. Frustrating.

    I don’t understand why they don’t upgrade — IE7 has been out for two years now.

  2. One thing to note, if your corporate clients are stuck on XP for lack of motivation to go Vista, then their impression of IE7 is tarnished by the bad Vista image.

    On the other hand, I recently did fresh installs of XP including on a Vista-loaded laptop. I’m stuck with IE6 by default, and I’m either stuck with downloading IE7 (23 megs) or Firefox 2.1 (about 7 megs). So as not to counter your post (getting a current-gen browser) entirely…

    And plus, I detest how I have to explicitly remove IE7 from the list of Windows Updates.
