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.

Everyone wants to ditch IE6

Even the end users running it in most cases.

At my work IE6 is the *standard*. Installing IE7 or IE8 is a big 'no no'.

On the plus side we also offer Firefox as a standard now and I'd say we have reached a nice point where 95% of our enterprise intranet applications run just fine in Firefox. Only a few (under 10) that still REQUIRE IE6 and we are working on those every day.

I fully expect to see Firefox become the primary standard and IE7/8 become the 'other option' at some point in the future at work. we are not a small company either - over 100k employees.

Enterprises can get off the IE6 treadmill if they are willing to put in the work and see the value of the investment.
