Everytime I get asked to make a website compliant for IE6, it gets me a little frustrated.

Now, I’ve given you all the reasons why as a web developer, I consider it important that people keep their browsers updated, but it’s important for the users.

With updated browsers, be it Internet Explorer, Firefox or any of the plethora of browers, you get improved security and improved features. Why wouldn’t you want to surf the internet with the most up to date technology? Why wouldn’t you want to do everything possible to keep your data as safe as possible?

Using a browser that is over 10 years old, and 3 versions behind is not going to give you the best experience on the web.

I no longer include compatibility for IE6 unless it is specifically requested. With the explosion of iPhones and iPads, I consider it far more important to ensure Safari compatibility – it is a growing market.

So, if you want to get the best out of the internet, make sure your chosen browser is the newest full version, and is up to date!
