    It kind of resembles ie6 burning a slow and painful death rather than watching you. One of these days maybe ie6 will finally go away for good. It's getting closer, but it just doesn't want to give up yet!

    That is pretty funny... and not surprising.

    I mean I helped install earlier this decade a complex multi-million dollar billing system that required not only IE5, but a specific version of IE5, down to the thousands on the version number. 5.051 worked, 5.052 didn't. (Or something like that.) Some of these software frameworks are really really fragile houses of cards and no one wants to even touch them for fear they will come tumbling down.

    Ouch, you'd think with something that expensive, they'd spend a bit more time making it... more robust

    If they would just SCREW it and move everything now to Chrome or FF then they would never ever again have to worry about upgrades!! YA THINK!!! Man people are stupid ha ha

    It will be more expensive 5 or 6 years from now when IE takes a crap when they have to upgrade systems whether they like it or not ha ha

    Although I have a few clients here in Guate that are still running 98, not even SE!! ha ha ha
