news The outdated version 6 of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer web browser is still mandated and/or supported by seven Federal Government agencies, according to a new survey of the Canberra public sector’s browser preferences, in a further indication that legacy versions of key software platforms continue to be maintained by the Government.
Internet Explorer 6 was first released in August 2001, and shipped with Microsoft’s Windows XP operating system, which continues to be popular within major and minor organisations as a stable desktop platform of choice globally. However, Microsoft considers the browser deprecated and unsupported, and has long been conducting a campaign to shift its users globally off the software. A number of modern features — such as fast Javascipt, support for tabbed browsing, protection against Internet malware, memory protection, granular privacy controls and more — are missing from IE6, and the browser also does not render many modern web sites correctly.
