I just saw in the latest SO blog post:
7% of [stackoverflow's] overall audience is still on creaky, broken, ancient old IE6.
What do you think about putting an 'IE6 no more' kind of warning on top of the page if the user loads SO (or SF, SU, Meta...) in order to tell them about the suffering that their browsers brings on the web development community?
Also, SO has some bugs on IE6 (I noticed that the warnings messages are off)
Of course leave a button "hide forever" since some of them must be forced to use IE6 by their companies.
It would also be interesting to see how the stats evolve next month.
EDIT: I do get that SO doesn't want to alienate people. But I'm not saying "just redirect them to getfirefox.com", it would be a warning that is possible to remove by one click. A lot of websites are doing it
I'm surprised that the SO community -so far- is against such an idea.
