Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-89) Drop support for Internet Explorer 6
Date Sat, 21 Feb 2009 12:04:01 GMT


Bruno Peeters commented on JSPWIKI-89:

At my employer we are still using IE6 and I am not aware of any plans to migrate to IE7. Individual
users of JSPWIKI will probably all have switched to IE7 (or FF). Corporate uses often do not
have the choice. If IE6 support will be dropped, corporate users of JSPWIKI risk to be stucked
in an older version of JSPWIKI.

> 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...
