We’ve all seen the retail and consumer space push to ditch IE6 gathering pace over the last 6 months, including a petition to the UK government and Google’s announcement that their online productivity suite stopped supporting IE6 yesterday. But the corporates (and specifically banking) have been a lot more reluctant to follow suit. But is this about to change?
Rumour on the street has it that, finally, the investment banks are going to start abandoning IE6. Barclays are allegedly going to do an enterprise-wide rollout of IE8 in Q2 of this year (put back from Q3 last year). Even more surprising (and impressive) is a rumour that Standard Bank of South Africa are going to ditch Microsoft browsers completely and move to Chrome for their corporate standard!
