    I think we all know it’s ridiculous that government clings to IE6. It’s not clear why either. The arbitrary barnacle behaviour of clinging to a broken boat kinda destroys any hope of future delivery.

      Alex, – hot of the mark with the reply (I’ve only juts posted!). Maybe we all need to make a bit more noise about the problem and someone (?) will take notice. Well, I can hope!

    IE6 also predominant in NHS. Local IT (in my experience) refuse to install FireFox. Security reasons usually cited, may be – again only my experience – because often internet restrictions are configured for IE so FireFox can provide a loophole. I had not thought of these cost implications so thanks for a new perspective!

    Thanks Elly. Seems strange that they would cite security for not installing Firefox, whilst accepting all the security holes in IE6. But then again I’ve stopped looking for rational behaviour amongst the public sector IT fraternity!

    More information on Google plans to phase out support for IE6. To quote” Ending support will also make programming of complex sites easier for Google, since implementations of web 2.0 features in different versions of IE differ significantly”
