Internet Explorer YouTube will be phasing out support for Internet Explorer version 6. "Judging by this screenshot taken by an IE6 user who was watching some videos on YouTube, it appears the Google company will be phasing out support for the browser shortly."

I think that IE6 should've died a long time ago, for the sake of making the web more secure.

Indeed; if there was a switch "IE compatibility modus" in software like Drupal, I would be using it on my websites!

Now WEB developers do the party! If just more hyper popular sites dig IE6, I would host that party myself for everybody.

Now I see Opera getting nervous, because their browser is not on recomended list ;)

Phase out next to useless IE7 and we got a new-fangled browser war on our hands! Almost to the tipping point when all the cool kids will be dropping IE flavors!

too bad Opera is still going to lose... when IE was bundled with Windows and now when Chrome/Firefox is "bundled" with YouTube and Google Apps.
