Internet Explorer Let's continue the browser talk for a while. Let's move from the pinnacle of browsing, all the way down to the very drainage pit: Internet Explorer 6. To me, Internet Explorer 6 is that annoying zombie that just won't die that chops off 80 of your health in a grueling midnight Left 4 Dead expert session. Microsoft may not say so outright, but they seem to be implying they agree with me.

Many big corporations use the latest IE by default. How about msft putting the rendering engine from IE7 into IE6 and let it present itself as IE6.1 in request headers? Then web development can get easier and the step to IE7+ is smaller.

Some ppl seems to stick with IE6 because it's more lightweight, they like the GUI better and because they have an old pirate copy of w2k/xp without wanting to enable Windows Update. It would be nice if these use cases would be fulfilled too.
