37signals drop IE6 support

Despite the waves of culling, a lot of IE6 installations are still at large in the browser highlands, fighting against impossible odds. Even Microsoft tries to get rid of it by their nasty weapon called Windows Update. It’s simply a dinosaur that should have been extinct long ago.

Now all of us IE6 haters out there have gotten a new ally, since 37signals has decided to drop IE6 support for Basecamp, effective a month ahead. I cannot really say it any better than they do:

“Supporting IE 6 means slower progress, less progress, and, in some places, no progress.”

Great going guys, I lift my hat in your direction. In my best Eric Idle voice: Bring out your dead.
