One of our clients recently presented a demo of a new web application we built for them to a potential customer. This customer happens to be a large corporation who enforces, as large corporations will do, the use of IE6 on all of their corporate machines. When we found this out we feared the worst: many tortuous hours of work twisting the fabric of good sense and CSS standards to eke a sensibly rendered site out of the maw of the IE6 beast.
Imagine our relief and surprise when the head of corporate IT for the potential customer not only decided that the application was essential for the organization, but that to support it they would eliminate the use of IE6 on their corporate machines.
Mark one in the win column for the good guys.
