Bye Bye IE6, It’s (not) been fun.

Internet Explorer is the bain of any web designer’s existence. It has been twice superceded, it displays CSS poorly, and more often than not, many modern scripts just don’t work on it.

LinkArtist Multimedia, like other companies (including Apple & Google) are going to be proactive in killing it off. As of June 30, we are no longer going to support Internet Explorer 6 in any of our websites as standard. If your site requires Internet Explorer 6 testing & development, it will now add to the cost of your project.

As a client of LinkArtist, you now have 3 options:

1. Ignore IE6 (and hopefully it will go away!)

2. Install a script on your website that encourages people to upgrade their browser (or has a disclaimer that, because the site is being viewed on IE6, user experience may be different to how it was intended.)

3. Pay for additional development time for Internet Explorer development & testing.

Naturally, IE7 & 8 will still continue to be supported, as will Firefox, Safari & Chrome.

This has been a long time coming, folks… Remember Netscape, anyone? 🙂 It’s time to hold a funeral.

You're too kind :-)

FYI, I run everything financial through the checkout on Rapskally.com, which is my company. Don’t worry, it’s still me, it’s just easier for accounting for it to be all under that.

Hey there, good looking. Sorry to interrupt.

Wanna Subscribe?

Thanks for reading my stuff. Seriously. I’m eternally grateful. Yes, I know, subscribing means more bloody email. But do subscribe, and if you’re feeling generous, you can leave a donation (this is my company site that powers the checkout. Don’t worry, it’s still me, I just hate admin). I am completely independent and whilst support is never expected, it is always appreciated.
