Dropping IE6

Posted by Daniel Hölbling on July 14, 2009

This one’s going to be quick. While doing the xhtml/css for the new iC-Website I decided that there will be no IE6 support. The site will be standards compliant and should pass W3C XHTML 1.0 strict validation.

The current markup already works quite well with absolutely no hacks/js-tricks to look like this:


Since IE8 renders this flawlessly (except for the rounded corners within the date), I see no real value in trying to make this check out in IE6. I’ve spent too much time on this already so in case you haven’t upgraded yet: Get IE8!

On a side note: I’m amazed how well IE8 renders the site. Everything I did so far worked perfectly on all 3 rendering engines without any problem. Thank god the dark days are over!

As always, you can follow the development on BitBucket. The site’s source code is available there. Feel free to comment on the markup :).
