What Browser Do You Use?

There is a scourge on the Web. It is called Internet Explorer 6. Even though the more recent version of Microsoft’s browser, IE7, has been around for more than two years, IE6 still represents 31 percent of all browsers out there (versus only 22 percent for IE7 and 36.5 percent for Firefox). This upgrade lag is simply unacceptable—to programmers, that is, who find it a real pain to make sure their Web apps work on five different browsers. Not only that, but IE6 supports some non-standard features and functions that are not compatible with other browsers.

I’ve been using and developing for IE7 since the beta version was released and I have to admit, it’s making standards compliance a TON easier, which is why I’m joining SaveTheDevelopers.org in their effort to get users to upgrade their browsers from IE6.  I’m not saying everyone needs to use IE, as I happily use IE7, Firefox and Opera side-by-side, as well as Safari every now and then.  I’m just encouraging everyone to move away from IE6 as your browser.

Won’t you join me in saving the Internet?
