Facebook - No longer supporting IE6

If you were using an older browser, Facebook servers used to deliver the older compatible layout to your screen.

Today, it seems that Facebook no longer has any backward support at all, sending CSS2 etc to incompatible browsers.

Do they offer instructions for getting a compatible browser, or are the templates simply breaking?

Are you sure it wasn't some temporary anomaly? I just logged in using IE6 and Facebook looked and worked as fine as it ever does.

The news warms my heart. A few more prominent examples and we'll all be able to drop IE6 support to client sites. It's only when major sites are broken in IE6 that the remaining users will realise that upgrading is not a matter of preference.

Not so fast... :) Many corporate sites still use IE6. They're not interested in paying to roll out IE7 and they're certainly not implementing Vista across their estates yet.

For them of course, lack of Facebook access can only be a good reason to delay that rollout!
