Internet Explorer 6.0

9 August 2009
By Sean

Greetings readers.  According to our statistics 19% of you are currently using Internet Explorer 6.0.  This was very surprising and a little troubling.  In 2001 when IE6 was released it really wasn’t a bad browser, but 8 years later and that is just no longer the case.  IE6 is obsolete and there are much better browsers out there.  You will notice that when you enter The Photo Playground you will be prompted to upgrade your browser (only if you’re using IE6) to either Internet Explorer 8 or Firefox 3.5.  I recommend Firefox, as this site was thoroughly tested using Firefox 3.0 and 3.5.  The absolute best experience here at The Photo Playground will be had with Firefox.

I understand that there are certain software applications that were built specifically for IE6.  To those people who are accessing this site from work, I apologize and encourage you to either access it from home or from a public terminal.  In an age where technological advancements are made so rapidly it can be daunting to keep up, but sometimes it becomes necessary to accept a little bit of change to allow progress.  The latest web browsers have streamlined the internet, made videos and graphics load faster, and most importantly have become more intuitive.  The browsers of the past are inefficient and stifle the growth and reliability that we have come to expect of the internet.

For those of you who are not running IE6, but are interested in the latest version of Firefox (my favorite) please click here, it’s a free download.

    It is quite rare that things on my rss feed makes me laugh out loud while I’m drinking tea, but now it’s happened.

    Ah well, better wipe my screen.
