This has been an on-again-off-again discussion for a while on our end, but the recent Google/China hacking incidents have brought it to the forefront again. Specifically:
Does anybody have an issue if we deny FC admin access to IE6, and display an upgrade message (along with links to mainstream news sources saying how insecure it is) instead?
We don't imagine many of you will care, but your clients may. That said, I (personally) feel pretty strongly about this. It's an ancient browser that's wickedly insecure. Using it to administer anything related to ecommerce is a Bad Idea.
So, thoughts? If we push this change out will it cause problems for you or your clients? Please let us know.
