Moving on: IE6, it’s over

describe the imageOur new Abak Web product doesn’t support Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 (IE6). This web browser was released on August 27, 2001. It’s been on the market for more than 10 years now, and still being used by many people around the globe even though Microsoft is urging users to drop it and upgrade to a more modern version. Currently, the most up-to-date edition of Internet Explorer is 9.0.

To this date, it’s almost mission accomplished: in North America, a little less than 2% of web users are still using IE6.

We decided not to support this web browser mainly out of concerns for security. We also considered the fact that it didn’t support many of the features of modern browsers that allows us to provide a rich user experience.

At Abak, we embrace the new web technologies and are fully committed to ensure the highest standards of security.

It’s now time to say goodbye to IE6!
