As Business : Let's Make it better without IE6
I think that most of firms and companies are all depending on Internet in their work especially those who are tech-related like Web Design Companies which I will talk a lot about.
As an example of breaking the rules, I started to not care about IE6 anymore in my work . Each website I design I just view it in the lovely Firefox and IE7 and fixing the little issues with IE7.
In a poll we created on our new website at Pure Design Co. (Arabic) We asked the most common question if they like the new design or not . It was good to know that about 85% of visitors loved the new design, and the rest 15% didn’t like it or actually liked the old design more although most of them didn’t view it !
The only reason for choosing this was that It’s not compitable with IE6 and Thanks to Wordpress & Plugins I put the lovely Yellow Message at the top of website while viewing it with IE6 to Upgrade or Switching .
As a progress we made, We found through Google Analytics that IE6 users became fewer day after day and Other Browsers are Increased .
So Why Don’t others follow such step and start giving up that Old ugly Browser and Advice their clients to upgrade or switch from . We should have a rule about that as Microsoft is not planning for a Force-Upgrade or Stopping its Support .
Let’s make the Internet Better Without IE6, Mac & Linux users : You’re Lucky
