I met some people still using IE6 , and it’s not a question of choice. In their company, all computers have winXP2 with IE6 and no updates. They cannot install anything so they’re almost forced to use this old IE..

I guess they aren’t supposed to browse websites in working hours anyway so it doesn’t matter. Plus the company should switch to modern browser if most of the company complains about it. But it’s up to them if they want to spend some time with complaining etc., which can be weird if they are not allowed to browse web :D And that’s a pity.

They have to use internet for working (in the case of those people), but I don’t understand why the administrator doesn’t allow other brwosers.. Security reasons :) ?

The reason could be anything, intranet, applications etc. For instance I have some side-business with t-mobile and one of theirs online applications I need runs only in IEs…

The problem with IE6 is that most people are afraid to install something on their computer in fear of viruses. So when they get notified that IE8 is available they click the cancel button. This is why as long as technology moves faster than the lifespan of a computer, users will always be one step behind unfortunately.

Finally!! I’ve phased out IE6 in my sites some time ago, and I’ve lived happier ever since.

They have to use internet for working (in the case of those people), but I don’t understand why the administrator doesn’t allow other brwosers.. Security reasons ?

Admins allowing only IE6 for security reasons is the ultimate irony :P

Business’s, Schools, and so on are far more likely to listen up, and move on when the internet giants are the ones starting to call the shots. My school has started upgrading every pc to IE8 , and giving teachers the privelidge to use Chrome. I’ve always used chrome and firefox at school, but that’s besides the point xD
