Basecamp to drop support for IE6

Got this message when I logged into BaseCamp today. It appears that more and more businesses are now dropping support for antiquated browsers like IE6, which to me is a good sign and would pave the way to better internet standards.

Important Reminder: IE 6 Phase Out

In July we announced that we would be phasing out support for Internet Explorer 6 on August 15, 2008. To make the transition easier, we’ve extended that deadline to October 1, 2008. From now until October 1st, anyone using IE 6 to access Basecamp (or our other products) will receive a notice every 3 days letting them know they’ll need to upgrade their browser before October 1, 2008 in order to continue to use Basecamp. The notice will be displayed in the web browser and will include links to download a modern browser (IE 7, Firefox, or Safari). This notice will also be shown to your clients who use Basecamp. You may want to re-read the announcement so you are prepared for any questions they may have. If you have any questions please contact support. Thanks for your patience during the transition.
