Screw IE6

DarkRat DarkRat writes  |  more than 6 years ago

DA (1302849) writes "As I look at apps like Gmail, Mobile Me, 280 Slides, Yahoo! Mail, etc etc.... I say screw it. People upgrade their computers when they want to run things faster, why can't we ask them to upgrade their browsers.

If you have a simple content site, then it is fine to support everyone, but as you build rich apps, maybe it is time NOT to be a crutch and support these browsers."
