From January 1st 2012, Microsoft started to phase out Internet Explorer 6 with forced automatic upgrades.
This marks a turning point in the world of web development as designers and developers no longer need to dread seeing “Support for IE6″ in their design briefs.
Microsoft has stated that IE6 users from Australia and Brazil will be the first to receive upgrades to the latest version of IE that their OS supports – for Windows XP that will be Internet Explorer 8 and for Windows Vista and Windows7 it’s Internet Explorer 9.
What will this mean for you and your company? Will you be trying to convince them to ditch Windows XP altogether in favour of Windows 7?
