IE 6 Can Get Along
One of the problems with IE 6 is that some apps won't run on later versions of the browser, and IE 6 won't run on any versions of Windows later than XP.
The problem with IE 9 is that it won't run on XP. How's that for a conundrum!
So what is a reasonable IT person to do? Rewrite IE 6 apps for IE 9 and move everyone to Windows 7? Stick with IE 6 and XP, even though support is waning faster than Andrew Dice Clay's career?
A company called Browsium claims it has the answer -- UniBrows. (Who is your best example of a celeb with a UniBrow? I pick Jeff Gordon before he married a supermodel. Make your pick at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Microsoft has two solutions to the IE 6 problem: Its favorite is to have IT move to IE 9. Its second favorite is to run IE 6 on Windows 7 in a virtual machine.
Here's an interesting fact. Browsium, like Microsoft, is based in Redmond.
