Quote from: CarpeDiem on September 13, 2009, 11:49:23 PMThe separate IE6 version is actually an easier approach in my experience -- well, except when I do a lot of updating!. The result of having two versions is that both seem to run faster.
Quote from: CarpeDiem on September 13, 2009, 11:49:23 PMI wonder if one of the reasons some folks stay with IE6 is that they refuse to upgrade from XP, and IE6 is the default for XP.

Quote from: Dragooon on September 13, 2009, 03:26:13 AMYou got no idea how much head banging IE(Especially IE6, IE8 is actually decent) has given to the developers. All hail IE for its all-mighty powers!

QuoteWere SMF to drop IE6 support, it would actually lose a lot of users; IE6 still accounts for a frightening percentage of users, of people who more often can't rather than won't upgrade, e.g. business users. SMF is trying to push corporate use as well, remember.
QuoteFor the record you are cautioned on running the RCs on a production environment but it isn't "you must not". This site does. I do on my sites, and I don't have a problem.
QuoteHere's hoping that once it's finally released, it can live up to all the expectation that has been built over the 1+ years of patience, waiting, and promises.
Quote from: Arantor on September 21, 2009, 02:39:49 PMHaving actually worked for a company whose intranet relied on IE6, it would have cost a colossal amount of cash for them to make it compliant with anything else - and given the current economic climate it just isn't something they'd be doing, so they won't be moving to anything for a couple of years yet. I suspect many other firms are in a similar boat.
Quote from: sremick on September 21, 2009, 02:54:48 PMWhat's we're faced with is not a technology problem, but a management problem. There's nothing technically preventing any corp like you mention from installing a proper web browser alongside IE6 and just using IE6 for legacy apps they're insisting on keeping.
