Its really not that hard to get a site working in ie6, certainly not ie7! All the bugs are very well documented, so are easy to fix. Everyone managed it 2/3 years ago. I normally have no more than 4 or 5 lines of css in my ie stylesheets, hardly difficult to maintain.

I agree that IE6 is a dinosaur and for some sites who cares, but if you have a site that has a huge cash turnover why would you want to lose even 1% of your audience? Not testing in IE7 however is an absolute disgrace :-(

Big sites need to be the leaders in this area.

So we should follow the leaders and the leaders dont support IE6 anymore… yohooooo :)

If you’re surfing the web with IE6 you can take the time to upgrade. They’re on version 8 already. Run Windows update once every 2 years and you’ll get a newer IE. But I agree with Mafloral: get Firefox and don’t look back.

As Jeffrey said.

IE6 is a decade-old browser. They probably decided not to support IE6 with the redesign. This is a good thing. Big sites need to be the leaders in this area. As we’ve said many times, a marketplace or a single site is far different from a template that is sold to an infinite number of users.

It’s not as important for the marketplace to support IE6 as it is for the products being sold. I would imagine that almost all TF’s traffic is non-IE6 users. ;-)

Also, as someone else said, they might be working on getting this stuff fixed but the dev’s are very, very busy and it will take time. I imagine if they’re going to fix stuff for IE6 , it’s probably going to be last on their list of things to do.

Seeing that IE6 had dropped to 12.1% in September made my day, really :D

Due to Microsoft’s continued support of XP, IE6 will continue to exist for a little while longer … I look forward to Google Chrome OS so that there’s something else for netbook users to use.

Envato could argue that if you’re looking for standards compliant web templates, you’re likely in the industry, therefore likely using a decent browser. On the other hand, practicing what one preaches is also a given.

Lord knows it takes long enough to get a file accepted at the moment, I’m sure they’re beavering away as fast and hard as they can, nevermind speedy code changes to the site ;)

No no you are wrong and i´ll show you why. It Depends on how you see it. How are you calculating the amount of people on earth? The amount of people on earth right now is x, but the amount of people that lived, lives and will live on the planet still is a INFINITE number, since we don´t know if the people will stop existing, or will stop having childs. So allways is a new one! In the case people stop existing, or stop having childs, well who cares? it´s the end, buy all the beear that you can and go to the mountains with your girl!!

You are off-topic . An ‘INFINITE’ Gallery uploaded today will not be bought by your dead ancestors nor by your future relatives 1000 yrs. from now on .

Plus , INFINITE vs UNLIMITED was just a simple observation , don’t start a fight over it .

You can´t create an infinite gallery because you will be for ever building it, so nobody will see it ever, bacuse you never will finish it, because is infinite and has infinite line codes… pufff imagine the part when cropping thumbnails!!!!

and if you ever, ever could finish it, then you will need to solve the ie6 bugs…. aaahhhh

:D

and really off-topic, but who cares!, you said something that put me thinking:

nor by your future relatives 1000 yrs. from now on

So you are assuming that evanto will not be alive in 1000 yrs.? or even more, the entire human/earth will not be alive? jejeje

Gosh I totally agree. Finally, someone taking a step forward :)
