Gauging numbers.

when MS stopped supporting it I did the same.

Nope.

Too much work for too few surfers, and the fixes I used to implement usually were messy. (Time would be better spent testing Opera, for instance.)

I don't design for IE/Mac, but I have had to code around problems with how it handles certain type of downloads. IE/Mac doesn't let you force a download (as opposed to viewing a filetype it supports), and I don't think it likes it when you use custom HTTP headers to change the filename and type. So I had to write this whole thing where I handled IE/Mac separately for certain types of downloads. When I wanted the user to download a jpg as opposed to viewing it IE/Mac wouldn't play along, so I had to zip the jpg and then it would download it rather than display it.

I don't either, I design for Safari then tweek for IE Windows and Windows Firefox if needed.

I noticed also that my Blogger site doesn't display correctly in IE Mac using one of Blogger's templates. That's one of the things that let me know it was time to drop IE Mac.

It shouldn't be a surprise that I no longer support IE Mac. :)

Although, I recently went a step further and walked around deleting it from everyone's computer at work.
