Oh, please let this come to pass soon. TechCrunch reports that YouTube is due to drop support for IE6 ‘soon’, pointing users at Chrome (obviously), IE8 and Firefox 3.5. Finally, one of the worst pieces of software ever to pollute the Internet with its presence is getting taken out to the barn with a double barelled shotgun, and not a moment too soon.
Sure, Digg already said they might do this, but YouTube is far more significant; if YouTube stop supporting IE6, then in practice it means I can too 🙂 Bye bye IE6, please do let the door hit your ass on the way out, preferably hard enough to fracture your pelvis. It’s the least you deserve for making life hell for hundreds of thousands of web site maintainers over the last few years.
