A list of the lucky developers that are dropping or have dropped IE6.

Mocoda Interactive

Shayne Yestal of Mocoda Interactive

Starting in September 2008 we will no longer offer IE6 support as standard in any of our proposals. Clients will have the option of requesting it, at a price.

The delay in dropping support has been the lackluster corporate adoption of IE7, which is now shifting.

We will be incorporating a script, similar to the SaveTheDevelopers.org script for all internal projects to help inform visitors. We will also request that clients do the same. –Shayne Yestal

Hi,

Great project here and I agree, IE6 should have been dropped ages ago.
I no longer cater for IE6 in anywork I do.

A developer friend of mine and I are actually wanting to start a movement to get more users off IE completely 😉 Will send you an update once we move forward with it.

Thanks. –Cerven Cotter

Squarespace

Anthony of Squarespace says:

Squarespace’s interface is just too advanced now to support those users. This also speaks to the sort of person we’d like to cater to. We’re not going to degrade experiences for the top 90% because of the bottom 10%—that’s ridiculous, especially considering that 10% also represents the highest tech support cost and lowest technical competence. Throwing out IE6 is a great thing. –Anthony Casalena

SteveJobsFacts.com

How could I forget? Both Jim and I have given up on IE6 for stevejobsfacts.com

So, we’ve officially stopped supporting IE6 regarding SJF. From this point on we wont be testing any changes to the site in IE6. Not that it ever worked properly in IE6, but it does (for now) work at least.

Both me and Dave are, like IE Death March states, planning on halting all support for IE6 in our development efforts by March 2009. Hopefully IE Death March catches on and inspires more developers, and front line web-services to also halt supporting IE6, and encouraging more users to update to IE7 or switch to a better more modern browser.-Jim at Zydev
