Since the announcement that 37signals will no longer support IE6 we can see a trend developing with developers dropping its support. IE6 is way out of date with current web standards, in our opinion it is like creating a windows program which needs to support DOS. Surely it is time to move on?
Initially we felt a bit of stress by dropping IE6 but now that our site is almost complete, and with the features we plan to implement, we are glad that we don't have to dedicate hours and hours of time to make the features compatible with the old beast. We also looked at the statistics of all the websites that we have developed and have noticed a steady decline in Explorer 6 users. In fact some sites have less than 30% of the users using it.
