YouTube Phasing Out Support for IE6



+ Add a Comment


YouTube when viewed in Internet Explorer 6 on Microsoft Windows 2000 is indeed showing that message.  Also, yes, I have Opera installed on that computer, and no, I don't like Internet Explorer. (Especially 6). And, while I'm on that subject, to all you commenters who were too lazy to check this yourself:  If you dig into the backup files created by service pack and IE installers on Windows XP, you would have found a working version of IE6 that you could have used to check out YouTube.


The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.



don't phase out IE6!!! Think of all the poor slackers who visit Youtube at work!!! ;)

It's a great idea to start phasing out older browsers, as what should of been started by a lot of major sites along time ago. The fact being is that older browser equal less secure. I certainly wouldn't surf the NET in IE6, unless I had no choice.



Dear sirs,

 It has come to my attention that there is a typographical error in your latest article; in the opening sentence, no less!

It should read, "According to a screenshot taken by a mouth-breathing idiot..."

Please correct this grievous mistake post-haste!



IE6 users know how to take screenshots?



I am a little shocked people still use IE period..



If it will give me a performance boost when watching youtube videos, I'm all for it.



 How about a more secure browsing experience?


You still use IE6? Honestly? Well that's awesome, now if you'll excuse me while I go work on my Geocities webpage while wearing a No Fear Shirt...
