[FB] IE6 Slips Below 1% Market Share Mark In The USA - Page 2

It's most likely all due to Corporate usage. Most customer service environments STILL use that crap browser for EVERYTHING. For interfacing to SalesForce.com, phone systems, databases, all sorts of stuff. I've NEVER liked IE, and in every job I've been at have had to use it in some capacity because the businesses are too cheap to replace their antiquated web and app interfaces. It's like AS400. Cheap, easy to build upon, but a royal pain in the ass for everyone who has to use it.

Installing any piece of hardware or update red flags the system and IT will come down the next day and set it back to defaults. It's ridiculous. Solution? Google Chrome through PortableApps on a flash drive smile.gif

Unless USB drives are secured and don't allow it.
I had used Opera USB for a while till they disabled USB drives unless using one of their encrypted USB drives (which I don't get).

I use Chrome on my work computer primarily, but our main ERP system (which was implemented less than 2 years ago) REQUIRES IE6. It will not work on IE7, IE8, IE9, Chrome, or anything else. Various bugs crop up if you try.

I ask, who in their right mind spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on an ERP system that integrates with a browser already several years out of date?

So, for that reason, not only am I stuck using IE in some cases (there are also some online reporting websites that require IE), but I am stuck on the oldest version still in use. Ugh. Triple ugh.

And the worst part is, we can never update to Windows 7 until the ERP system is replaced, which probably won't be for another decade or so.

That is truly a sad situation.. The firm who made that system must have really loved IE6 or maybe it was a lot cheaper/easier to go that route..

Good to hear its basically dead though, I haven't paid attention to it for a while now while developing sites
