According to a screenshot taken by an IE6 user who was watching some videos on YouTube, it would appear that support for the browser will be
phased out very soon
The screenshot suggests that an upgrade to a “more modern” browser, including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 3.5. And, they’re not alone – apparently Digg is looking to cut their support for IE6 as well.
There’s been no official word yet from YouTube, so this information is only as good as its sources (truthfully, folks on Twitter ). But, it doesn’t seem illogical, so if it turns out to be true, there’ll be little surprise.
