Is this is it for Internet Explorer?

In my previous blog post on website design & cross-browser support , I brought up the issue of cross-browser support and the main challenges for website designers trying to acheive the same site in all browsers - most notable Internet Explorer 6. Now, it seems that problem may be about to be resolved.

According to this report from the BBC, the recent events regarding Google & China were brought about due to a security vulnerability within Internet Explorer 6.

Following these reports, the French and German government issued warnings against using Internet Explorer completely and advised that an alternative browser should be used as the vulnerability within Internet Explorer spans across all versions of the browser from 6 - 8.

Internet Explorer has been losing market share for some time with users switching to open source alternatives such as Mozilla Firefox, website designers inparticular have been calling for the heavily outdated Internet Explorer 6 to be destroyed due to its lack of support for modern coding standards. So will these warnings from various governements and official organizations be the final curtain call for Internet Explorer?

Rewilding the planet with animation and motion design

We've only got one planet, and right now it needs all the help it can get. Climate change and biodiversity loss are massive challenges that we need to tackle head on.

That's why, for every animation project over £1000 a donation of 2% of the total budget will be made to the World Land Trust, on your behalf.

The money will go towards WLT's "buy an acre" programme; buying up and protecting vital habitats around the world, and helping fight against climate change.

Any projects under £1000 will have a tree planted on your behalf.

Acres saved so far:

Thanks to my wonderful clients and the animations we've produced, enough money has been donated to save around 12 Acres of vital habitats around the world.
