Default Are we still bothering about IE6?

Just wanted to take a quick survey about IE6 and whether we care any more. It is full of security holes, it doesn't display anything as it should and it doesn't even have tabbed browsing! Are you still building with it in mind?

Any stats or figures anyone can add would be great...

Yes i am still considering IE. From experience only a few people really know how to upgrade browsers and very few people i know even know or use the auto updates from mircosoft... If i ask some what browser there using they say i have no clue. Whats a browser... i even asked someone at work to open excel and they've never know what it was or did even though they worked in an office....

I still consider IE6 but I'll but up with a lot of minor issues there that I would fix for any other browser.

i was thinking that i might add a javascript alert if ie6, "if this alert annoys you its because you really need to update your browser as this is annoying to me
please do it while im at a villa opening" or something like it
