Hey JaMoTo:

Wednesday you talked about how negligent certain enterprises are to
continue using IE6. Well my current employer makes me use IE6 and
will not let me upgrade. It’s so frustrating, espectially since
dozens of websites — including facebook and twitter and youtube –
remind me right at the top that I “may want to upgrade my browser.”

I may want to, but I cannot.

Tom,

You posed somewhat of a question in yesterday’s BOL episode about who still
uses Netscape. If Netscape Messenger is considered part of Netscape the
Browser, then look no further than your friendly neighborhood National
Security Enterprise (formerly known as Nuclear Weapons Complex) facility.

Just a few months ago, we were still using Netscape to process classified
emails. We finally switched to Lotus Notes. Now we’re waiting to get
upgraded from IE6 and Office 2003.
