Promerix joins Microsoft's IE6 Countdown campaign
Wednesday, March 9th, 2011
10 years ago a browser was born. Its name was Internet Explorer 6. Now that we're in 2011, in an era of modern web standards, it’s time to say goodbye.
As a website development company, one of the hardest things we have to do after we design a great website is making that website display and function properly in outdated browsers like Internet Explorer 6.
These outdated browsers don't support many of the features that make modern browsers safer and faster while providing an all-around better browsing experience.
Additionally, making modern websites compatible with outdated browsers takes hours of work and resources. If outdated browsers were no longer an issue, it would lead to lower development times and costs worldwide.
Promerix is happy to join the IE6 Countdown movement. For more information on this movement, please visit www.ie6countdown.com.
Why move off of Internet Explorer 6?
- There are many benefits of upgrading to a newer version of Internet Explorer – improved speed, tabbed browsing, and better privacy settings to name a few.
The web has changed significantly over the past 10 years. The browser has evolved to adapt to new web technologies, and the latest versions of Internet Explorer help protect you from new attacks and threats.
