50 Ways to Leave Your Browser
I have to say that the world’s webmasters owe YouTube a debt of gratitude for their recent campaign to encourage web surfers to upgrade away from Internet Explorer v6 and up to a more modern browser.
Here’s one cute alert you see if you visit YouTube using that IE6 browser…
On Cisco.com, we still make sure IE6 works on our pages. But because it requires so many code workarounds and extra debugging, the ancient IE6 browser is the bane of every web team’s existence at every site on the planet. And as browser technology gets better and better, IE6 is feeling more and and more like an old covered wagon whose oxen have gone out to pasture.
At Cisco.com, we may not hold sway on our own to get visitors to upgrade to the modern browsers, but we are betting the world will indeed upgrade their browsers for the sake of funny videos!
