IE6Funny thing happened to me as of the past couple of weeks, for the past year or so i thought i was finally out in the clear of having to develop for IE6. Mainly because the websites i build are for web developers, and no self respecting web developer runs IE6 as their main browser. Also because the other websites i had built had an avarage of 2 percent IE6 traffic. So i wanted to share my thoughts on what your mentality should look like.

First of all if you are wondering as of this point if you should support IE6 i have a short and a long answer. The short answer is if you check your traffic and see that more than 2-5% use ie6 you HAVE to support it if not fully at least partially. What i mean by that, as i get into the long answer, is that you can actually just partially support ie6. As long as nothing is flying off the page, and things generally resemble what they should leave it. Now if you are like me where 13% of my users (in my new job) have ie6 you basically have to make it so it matches to the last pixel. Personally, when i develop for the 2-5% ie6 traffic i still use the CSS3 rounded corners fully knowing that all ie browsers will have the old school straight corners… WHO CARES! It still looks good, so if it works forget having to use a bunch of javascript that may or may not work.

So as of today, i do highly beg you to consider adding a comment statement in your website that displays some sort of message to all IE6 users begging them to switch to at least IE7.
