Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-89) Drop support for Internet Explorer 6
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2007 19:46:43 GMT


Andrew Jaquith commented on JSPWIKI-89:

We should deprecate IE6 support after 2.8, methinks. For JSPWiki 3.0, we should require IE7,
or a more standards-compliant browser.

> As Microsoft is pushing IE 7 to almost all desktops out there, the question is, how much
longer do we need to keep supporting IE6?  I understand Dirk has had many issues with IE support,
so how long do we want to keep it on our support list for the default template?  There is
a certain point during which the effort brings no significant gain.
> I'm opening this item here so we can keep track of it here, but I'm not yet assigning
a version before we've discussed this thoroughly.  If JSPWiki was consumer software, then
the decision would be easy, but there are loads of companies out there who're still standardized
on IE6.
> IE6 still has a ~30% market share, but it's waning.
> Of course, it took about four years for IE5 to drop from 30% to 5%, so this Issue might
be here for a long time...
