Just when you thought you could soon forget about IE 6 and all its charming idiosyncracies, Microsoft have announced that they’re launching IE mobile in China, using IE 6 as the rendering engine.
IE 6 was released in 2001, and was has been called the 8th Worst Tech Product of All Time. And now, in 2008, with their desktop browser nearly at version 8, “Microsoft has brought the ‘full rendering engine of IE6 to the phone’”.
Update: I tested IE 6 mobile’s standards support.
I work for Opera, which makes a modern browser for phones and desktop, but this is a personal opinion on my personal blog and does not represent official Opera position – you know the blah blah.
