In the recent flurry of YouTube and other sites letting it be known they will no longer support the outdated version 6 of Internet Explorer, Microsoft’s view on the point has been long awaited. And the truth is, they want to see IE6 gone as much as anyone else. But the final verdict seems to be that the company will not make the decision for its users.
Eversince it arrived in March 2009, the software giant has been pushing IE6 and IE7 users to move over to IE8. But it’s still up to the user to make the final decision to upgrade, as supported by the statement Microsoft has released. Microsoft seems determined to hold up their end of the bargain, as they “committed to supporting the IE included with Windows for the lifespan of the product. We keep our commitments.” Courtesy of slashdot.org
