We desperately want users to upgrade to the latest and greatest. A prominent and respected Web citizen recently said “With Ajax we are developing to 1997 technology, and are restricted by IE 6.” What if you didn’t have that nagging feeling, and instead could use the platform that sits below the clients of modern browsers? You could do a hell of a lot more.
Some are arguing over how easy or hard it is to get safe (run some regedit really OK?) but scary it is. Other folks can’t gloat though, as who know what the hackers will find next. But, for now, we may get a few switchers. Maybe the IT guys who made the call to write ActiveX components back in the day will finally get a kick up the backside and move over? The end users? Hmm, I wonder how many are paying any attention versus clicking on the big “Internet” button and doing their thing.
