Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-89) Drop support for Internet Explorer 6
Date Sun, 09 Aug 2009 20:12:14 GMT


Dirk Frederickx commented on JSPWIKI-89:

Yep, plse close.

It just means that we will not test anymore on IE6.   Testing will occur on IE7 and IE8.
Anyway, our policy is to avoid or reduce as much as possible browser specific tricks.

> 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...
