John Gruber and daringfireball.net doesn’t bother with Internet Explorer:
If Daring Fireball looks like shit in your browser, youâ€™re using a shitty browser that doesnâ€™t support web standards. Internet Explorer, Iâ€™m looking in your direction. If you complain about this, I will laugh at you, because I do not care. –John Gruber
http://viewzi.com – Does not code around IE6.
While Viewzi willÂ probablyÂ work in Internet Explorer 6, weÂ highlyÂ recommend that youÂ upgradeÂ your browser version. IE6 debuted in 2001, and is a dinosaur by technological standards. Newer browsers make for reliableÂ developmentÂ andÂ safer browsing. –Viewzi
Not entirely surprising considering those involved, but Apple’s latest web-based service, MobileMe, required “Safari 3, Internet Explorer 7, or Firefox 2 or later.”Â Apple is a high profile company, but not many others have the same savvy target market.
Know of any other company or web based service dropping IE6 support? Let me know.
37 Signals (the guys behind Rails, Basecamp, Backpack and more) dropped support for IE6 last week across their product line.
Oh, how liberating that must feel.
