Humor BBC News reports "Mark your diaries for 4 March because in Denver the funeral arrangements are well underway for the planned passing that day of Internet Explorer 6". There's a phobia of being buried alive but I think in this case, it's the living that are all too quick to be shoveling the dirt over as IE6 doesn't officially die until 2014 when Microsoft pull the life-support.

This is my philosophy when it comes to browser support

If it is a personal project I am doing for fun, I have no problems using things that only webkit supports.

If it is a personal project I intend for greater consumption, I'll add in anything firefox supports.

If it is for a client, I will add in IE7 and Opera, and will make sure the site is usable in IE6, but will not fix rendering errors.

If the client requires IE6 support, I usually explain why that is a pain. If it is still required, I tend to double any estimate to give myself breathing room, and will point out again that they will probably be paying more.
