    Oh and to those that haven't upgraded I bet you still use windows 3.11
    There are people who cannot upgrade. It'd be nice if we could force all corporate users to just upgrade when ever we wanted.

      Add to it outdated computers that have IE6 preinstalled being used in developing countries. Since internet is global, I can see how it could be a problem.

        They say that but it is pure lazyness on their behalf. Most Java programs actually are upgraded every two years because all students that do programming are given the latest in most universities.
        Why neglect the modern stuff?
        Why fall behind with the times?
        I reckon some of the sites I have seen that have been built in IE6 have got more red x's on them and they have plenty of broken links. It's their browser and you have stubborn bosses of corprorations that refuse to upgrade and would rather upgrade cars, give their workers more money.

        • Lets say a company spent 500,000 7-8 years ago developing software that plugs into IE6. Now in 2010, it will take 1,000,000 dollars and an additional 150 dollars per seat because something they need costs to install per system. Why would this company want to spend 1-2 million dollars to update?

            It would depend upon where they were located. If it was in Australia and it was in the Northern Territory where there are people there who have next to nothing, fair enough. If it was in Sydney or Melbourne I reckon the boss would be given the boot very quickly.
            If it was in America or in the uk I am sure that people would lose their jobs pretty quickly for not upgrading.
            You look around at india for example they used to have next to nothing and they now have almost everything that is modern.
            However, there are other places around the world that do have reasons not to upgrade.

            I would rather have a set policy of upgrading the employee's workstations to the more modern technology rather than having a new car or a company house..... Most call centres these days use the latest technology.
            IE6 is considered old just like computers that run windows 3.11 or windows 95. Both of those are not supported any more. People still like to use them..... They have trouble with their computers and it costs more to fix than to get a brand spanking new pc with the latest stuff on it.
            If you had a large company with all employees getting paid $2 million dollars each it would be simple to do. You get each employee to pay for their brand spanking new pc with all the new things on it and the software they need. It's simple to do that. You look at a brand and you take orders and within a few days you get what you ordered.

                But you use the latest browsers as well.
                With what I am doing as a business which is website design I use Dreamweaver. It doesn't matter which version as it does all the same things that I want it to do for me. So every 2 years I will be upgrading to the latest edition of Dreamweaver.... Same with my pc. I will get another one at the end of 2010.

                          Clear on what? Does it mean IE6 issues will be resolved in vB4.0.1?

                          • Well shwab... be concerned about rude all you want, we're more concerned about your ignorance. What part of "some people cannot upgrade due to corporate environments" do you not understand? Hundreds, if not thousands of corporations globally are embedded with IE6. They've written their corporate backend to interface with it because it's extensible and honestly was probably the most flexible version of IE ever released. You seem to want to focus on the individual user that browses to your website. Yeah, maybe that person does need to upgrade his browser to be compatable with your site, but for hundreds of thousands if not millions of corporate users that is simply not an option. The corporations have software that relies on IE6 to interface their mainframes and minis, they can't just upgrade their browsers, because then they can't interface the corporate networks anymore. Why is this so hard for you to understand? This is absolutely not a question about whether or not people should upgrade their browser, because that's not an option in a lot of cases. This is a question of whether vb4 will be made compatable with the still supported IE6.
                            Anybody who says "it can't be done" will usually be interrupted by somebody who is already doing it.

                              At least they know and feel that it is yes a problem. If they know how to fix it, I think they will do!

                              Not like somebody here who is a negative and even doesn't belive that it is a problem. "+_-

                                You are rude, insulting and refuse to listen to what knowledgeable people are telling you. Do you actually have a job? Because you clearly have NO idea how business works.
