YouTube kills IE6 support on March 13
Internet Explorer 6 needs to die, and anyone sensible will agree with that statement. That’s why we are big fans of the major web publishers that are doing their part to hasten that demise, like that Google is doing with YouTube on March 13th. According to them:
Support stops on March 13th. Stopped support essentially means that some future features on YouTube will be rolled out that won’t work in older browsers.
In the image above, you see that YouTube now features instructions on how to upgrade to a more modern (and more competent) web browser when they detect you are using an older browser, like IE6. Also, it’s not just YouTube that Google is doing this with, as IE6 support for Google Docs and Google Sites ends on March 1 as well.
