    WTF? *Rolling on the floor laughing my ass off*?!!!

    What can I say? About time?

    Pretty darn slow — when will they upgrade to IE8, in October 2015?

    You DO know… the latest Microsoft browser is IE8, NOT IE7, right?

    • mabdul

      IE8 or IE7 doesn’t matter. IE7 has very less problems in contrast to IE6! IE8 improved the rendering engine – of course – a lot, but not it really doesn’t matter if ie8 or ie7 isn’t installed. The thing is: this company is finally updating. that is really god. I do think this company has replaced their old IE6 tools and the last NT4/2k pcs were shut down / updated…

    hey, at least they do the update…. better late than never ;-)

    always look on the bright side :)

  • Andylee

    ah yes, and IE 7 is a BIG improvement over IE 6 :)

    • iPoesc

      Yeah, you can download Firefox even more comfortably…:)

      • Andylee

        sure, you can also download opera, chrome, IE 8, IE 9 beta, flock, whatsoever.

        They are just not going to do that. Let’s just be happy that they are no longer using IE 6.

    Install Opera, no reboot required …..

    • nobody

      it works not with NTLM/integrated auth/socks proxy so no use in corporation for opera

    • Bas

      Opera 11 Beta install costs about 30 seconds here

    Laugh all you will, but we still use IE6 on several computers in our organization. One of these web based software we use does not support on anything but IE6 (it might work on IE7,8 but it is not supported). This is the reality of corporations around the globe.

    That’s some crappy software if it requires IE 6.0. I’d be ashamed to have written such junk.
