Google tells users to drop IE6

Google tells users to drop IE6. All I can say is, good riddance! If there is one good thing I can say about IE6 it would be that it's relatively lightweight, however it looks like Google Chrome might solve that issue.

  1. We’re stuck with IE at work. Ford’s (dealer side) website doesn’t work with anything else buy IE. Finally it’s compatible with IE7 (somewhat). But all computers at the workplace, except for mine is running IE6. Only reason I don’t is that my computer is too new (running Vista). But I use FireFox when not on Ford’s website.

    So, what is Google Chrome like? Have you used it?

    • I heard somewhere that IE6 will be around for another 5 years due to company policies that prevent upgrading. That’s just sad.

      I tried Google Chrome when it first came out (it’s only available for Windows right now) and although it felt slightly lacking in features, it definitely felt a lot faster and less bloated than Firefox or IE7. It’s a tiny download, so check it out. 🙂
