Internet Explorer 6 support

As I've mentioned before, we're phasing out support for the Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 browser. Microsoft itself has urged people to stop using it, and now they are stepping up those efforts:

They even have specific resources for companies that still require IE6 for use with their own internal systems:

If you're "stuck" on IE6, please help spread the word!

Who cares now with Windows 7 on the scene more and more.

What are they going to do with people who have XP and have to reload after they quit supporting XP (maybe a general code for activation?)

I have worked in a corp where they bounced back and forth with windows office and open office when the software police come to town. Funny to watch them try and figure out how to use open office when they have to

I do believe in paying for what you have. Where I work now the are use explorer 6 and I bet they will not update it unless they can no longer access things they need. Wage slaves do not count

So, just curious, do you "recommend Chrome" because it allows those horrible giant floating ads to block my screen?

What do you mean? We don't run ads like that, and we don't plan to.

No, I recommend Chrome because it implements the newest web standards very well. So do Safari and Firefox, although they're a little behind on the very newest standards, and I personally find Chrome to be faster and more stable.

When I use my native browser on my HTC Shift, There is a giant floating ad that floats for a minute then disappears. I can't get rid of it. It goes away by itself and it's only on phonescoop.com. So I dunno. It's not that big of a deal but I noticed it's only when I use the android google browser. Firefox and Dolphin don't have that problem.

Huh. That sounds like a layout / rendering problem where an ad isn't displaying where it's supposed to.

There isn't supposed to be a floating ad. If it only appears in one out of three browsers, that tells you it's not intentional.

I'll look into it. More info would be helpful. What page(s) does it appear on, and what is the ad for?

Well I've looked at it several times and it hasn't showed up on there today so far. When/If I see it again, I will post the info. I think you are right about the ad not being where it's supposed to be... I think it's one of the ads that is normally on the homepage.
