Microsoft Pans IE6
Friends don’t let friends use IE6. - Amy Bazdukas, Microsoft Internet Explorer General Manager.
She does give businesses some cover, saying because some companies are big stupid heads and built applications around IE6 rather than web standards they might have to keep using it. I’m paraphrasing.
In any event, good advice from Microsoft. I’ve been spreading this advice on some of my sites since IE8 came out.
