The Ides of March
This has gone on long enough. As of March 15, 2009, StudioJ will be changing its browser support options and dropping automatic support of Internet Explorer 6.
All projects commenced on or after that date will incur an additional fee if IE6 support is requested. This accurately reflects the very large overhead IE6 places on site development.
Why? IE6 is now over 7 years old. In computing terms, it's ancient. Not only has it been succeeded by IE7 and very soon IE8, it was designed for a web computing paradigm that is now obsolete. Despite this, perhaps in excess of 25% of web users are still using IE6 to browse the web.
IE6 is outdated, flawed, a gigantic headache to work with, and needs to die. That is why we're not throwing support for it in for free anymore.
More information will be released when we publish our quote generator; however we are currently looking at around 10% surcharge.

I think this will lose you customers. IE6 is still used by many major firms that are loathe to upgrade and upgrade and upgrade ... .
