YouTube.com warns Internet Explorer (IE6) users

YouTube.com has the "guts" to tell Internet Explorer 6 (IE6 ) browser users "We will be phasing out support for your browser soon."

The users of IE7 are OK.

This is great news for pretty much all Web developers as IE6 is a support nightmare and YouTube.com has a great market pull to make change.

This market pull was previously demonstrated with Flash plugin -- lot people downloaded the Flash plug in just to view movies on YouTube.com

Now users are asked to download Google Chrome, IE8, or Firefox 3.5 (Opera and Safari are not listed).

Our hats off to YouTube.com!
