As we continue to work aggressively on refining our website, improving its layout and providing functionality that gives you better-than-ever access to content that interests you, we want to proactively advise those of you still using Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 6 that we are joining many high-profile technology companies in phasing out support for that browser.
We ask that you take a moment and update your browser to the current version of Internet Explorer, or — even better — download and install one of the other excellent, modern browsers currently available at no cost to you.
I’ve provided some links to downloads of these browsers at the bottom of this post.
We actually have only a very, very small set of members still using IE6. As we work to improve performance and provide a more dynamic user experience, some of the things we’re working on can get, well, a bit sluggish (or downright ugly) in IE6.
IE6’s time has come to an end, for the Internet in general and us in particular. It’s nearly 10 years old, and that’s 95 in browser-years. Even Microsoft have opted to pull the plug and remove IE6’s life support. As of the start of April (and no, this is not an April Fool’s joke), we will begin releasing features on VideoBox that will work partially or not at all in IE6.
It’s time. Let IE6 go, my friends, and let it go peacefully. IE8 is free to download and install, and would be more than happy to take over for its Grandpa. Google Chrome, Firefox, and Opera are excellent browsers as well, and all of them are faster, lighter-weight, more standards-compliant and more fully-featured than any version of Internet Explorer.
Thank you for helping us toward our goal of making VideoBox the best, coolest, most dynamic and useful adult website in the world. After you upgrade, you’ll thank us.
