As I am a web developer I always appreciate browser compatible code and design.

So far I was very much satisfied with the minute details kept by Stack overflow team in functioning as well as design, but today when I logged into my account through IE6 I am getting some horozontal space over header, also think this is the issue in IE6 due to 1 <div id="overlay-header">

Even I started promoting this application to my colleages in this four days.Just want this designing bug to be removed.

Removing this bugs will create great place in my mind for stackoverflow.

  • Ya I too accept the fact.Also I want stack overflow to resolve .png image problems – Wakar Sep 10 '10 at 9:37

The short answer to your question: No, not going to happen.

Robert answered the question very well here.

The short version: SO will only guarantee the rendering of text in IE6, and will not be addressing or fixing any layout issues with IE6.

Since even Microsoft no longer support IE6, I am not at all surprised at this decision.

  • Though stack overflow doesn't look that bad in IE6,still I am proud to be a part of this application.Thaks for the link – Wakar Sep 10 '10 at 9:50

Going to happen or not going to happen is not the issue here. Designing application for every browser is what I have been taught.Smooth functioning of Stack Overflow should be considered on every browser.

  • Why you are favouring IE6.No one loves IE. I hate this two alphabets. – Wakar Sep 10 '10 at 11:09

    @Wakar - by your reasoning then the website should also be perfect in Netscape 2.0, IE 3.0, and Lynx. After all, they're a part of "every browser" – Mark Henderson Sep 10 '10 at 11:29
  • @FarSeeker: Please be reasonable. It would be enough that the website be perfect in any browser the same age as IE6 or newer. Check out this chart, Netscape 4.8, Opera 6 and FF 0.9 would qualify! upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/74/… – Piskvor left the building Dec 14 '10 at 14:56
