i can tell you need better security advisers much, much better! it's a disaster waiting to happen. i had the same conversation over this forum, and i've argued: even if the workstations are blocked and are erased on reboot into an initial frozen state, the servers are not.Not a myth at all. Like many other branches of UK national and local government, the office where I work has only one browser available on the network, and that is IE6. While certain websites like Facebook, warez, pr0n etc are blocked, we have unrestricted browsing apart from that.
even pr0n sites don't have the entire world as a target there is a target audience for each website, and using other similar sites stats you can make a decision regarding the browser set you code for.How do I know my client's target customers? They are people, out there. Hundreds of them, thousands of them. They come from all walks of life, they have all sorts of different backgrounds, profiles, needs and wants. Some of them, I have no doubt, will use IE6.
