IE6 users for me now down to 15%, will drop support to basic stylesheet when it hits 5% ;o) At what level will you drop IE6 support? @welshstew

Wondering if I should drop IE6 support for my blog. At work we have over 60,000 people using IE6 on the intranet. @tannyo

@rosshj Bit hard to drop IE6 off your 'headache list' when you have client's whose ultra-savvy IT departments still swear by it!! Grrr! @masey

@jake drop it. There's no good reason to support IE6. Users won't upgrade if we keep pandering to them @strawp

@briancray Way to be! If my site didnt promote something beyond me, it wouldn't support ie6 either! @KPfefferle

@pauloelias I always use doc types and never run in quirks mode. When I code I aim to support IE6 and up and use a Win2k test system. @thedjbook

Sorry IE6 users... we have decided to not support IE6 with our new web site. Please upgrade - it's for your own good! :) @aviationgeek

@GregEh sadly if your target demographic includes people who aren't web savvy you have to support IE6 to some extent, especially for e-comm @camcavers

Thinking about dropping IE6 support for my personal projects... thoughts? I'm tired of supporting an 8 year-old browser. @aviationgeek84

I propose a new event: "IE6 liberation day". On this day we will no longer have to support IE6. How 'bout Monday? @phpdevelopment

Why many TOR still need to support IE6. They can't update to IE7 coz they don't have MS license? @joomlacorner

So, IE8 is in RC1 (http://is.gd/1YYL). Hopefully that means full release 1st half 2009. I'll feel 110% justified dropping IE6 support then! @Japh
