"Please, please, just let Internet Explorer 6 die. It
was an awful browser even in its day, 2001. The only reason it
became popular was that Microsoft got away with illegally beating
Netscape into the ground. Unfortunately, many corporate developers
created crude, IE 6-specific Web applications that we're stuck with
to this very day. And, now thanks to Browsium's UniBrows, we may be
stuck with for many more years to come.
"UniBrows will let users run IE6 within IE8. Yes, that's right;
people will be able to keep running IE 6 for years to come."
