    Interesting reading, but I'm more interested in IE 5.5 and 6. When the hell are they gonna stop being used?

    Never. Never, ever, ever. After the apocalypse, all that will be left will be cockroaches and IE6 running on a few government machines in some bunker somewhere.

    Been using the FireFox 4b6 now as my main browser, but its as slow as anything compared to IE8. Governments cant see the need to upgrade unless its dead, as those Windows NT4 and 2000 machines will still be chugging along.

    I was the same, was using FireFox and then the FF4 beta's up until 4b5 and tbh its took a swing far to close to Chrome. With Chrome working and doing everything I needed it to, FireFox is now relegated to a testing browser.

    IE9 however is looking good. Issue being MS need to get on a continuous dev cycle with their browsers. IE9 might fit the bill now but give that 6 months when Opera, Chrome and FireFox for example all have another several build revisions under their bonnet, IE9 will be left behind once again.

    Would be interesting to see if MS are even considering rolling development for IE9+

    Not until companies stop insisting that it needs to be used for their products. BT for example require IE6 for some of their management software.
