Can’t remember where I first saw this … or maybe someone sent me the URL. Anyway, IE Death March is a website with the following goal:
It’s time to put a deadline on dropping IE6, and I say that time is now, and the deadline should be soon… say like, March 2009.
A worthy and noble cause that’s scuppered by institutions and businesses who still run Windows 2000 as their operating system of choice, who can’t upgrade to IE7 (like that’s any better!) and won’t move over to Firefox because you can’t easily lock it down in the same way as IE.
Still, given that I spend up to 75% of my development time just trying to get code to work in IE6 all power to the campaign.
