We need to know if we can eliminate IE 6.0 from the admin UI
A poll for you to determine if supporting IE 6.0 is really necessary.
What I would like to know is whether we can stop supporting IE 6.0 in the administration UI (CMSDesk, Site manager). The reasons why we would like to do that are following:
IE 6 typically needs a lot of hacks (different CSS) to behave the same way like the other browsers
It takes a lot of time to make the CSS and layouts supporting IE 6 and we could use that time for other things
We don't believe that there is a majority of clients who would need it, so we think everyone could profit from not supporting this and dedicate the spare time to new features of Kentico CMS.
Current list of supported browsers is following:
IE 6.0, IE 7.0, IE 8.0
Safari 4.0 or Firefox 3.5 on Mac OS
Of course the browsers supported on live site will stay the same (including IE 6), since no one can control the browsers of visitors.
Please vote for the browsers you need to be supported for your content editors, and please don't vote for IE 6 unless you know you absolutely need it.
I also added the browsers which are currently not supported to see your preferences.
Which browsers should the CMSDesk support?
