Do you really think google would have been using IE if they had any choice? They make their own browser which is a lot better, there has to be some proprietary apps locking them to ie.


I can't believe this c... So the maker of a superior browser is deliberately using an inferior one, just because of some proprietary app?? If my memory serves me right, ms has issued repeated calls for ie to be upgraded and this stellar company (which has become quite a player in the industry) is locked down due to some app?? This "liberator", of sorts, is locked down by some app that uses all the bad and ugly stuff that ms forced on us?? Un(f...)believable (excuse my french)

What? MS has never "forced us" to use anything.

Otherwise, yes, un(f...)believable that Google uses IE6.

Also un(f...)believable that people here are acting like this is all MS' fault (as always) that someone at Google surfs the web with IE6.

Go surf the modern web with Netscape 7, which was released about the same time as IE6. While at it, rant a little about how Mozilla is not any more supporting this dead old browser and urges everyone to use Firefox 3.5.
