There are times when you just have to ask the question "WHY?!", and this is one of those times.
Google has performed a Gmail upgrade for those still using Microsoft Internet
Exploder Explorer 6. Yes, you read that correctly. Version 6. Not 7.
Evidently there’s still a fair amount of internet users getting by with version 6 of the IE browser. If you happen to be one of those people, you must be an adventure seeker. One who likes to live on the wild side. One who looks at all the dangers of using that browser, spits in the direction of the internet and says.. "Bring it on.."
To give you an idea of how old IE6 is, it was released on August 27, 2001. IE7 is also old (released October 18, 2006). Regardless of that, if you’re still using IE6 by choice.. you seriously need to upgrade.
I would imagine most of the IE6 users are in corporate environments run by idiots who positively refuse to upgrade the browsers on the end user machines to version 7. Why? Nobody knows. I blame corporate stupidity.
