Since Google's recent announcement regarding the phasing out of support for Internet Explorer 6 within its Google Apps products pressure has mounted on various other organisations to drop the out-dated browser, including the UK Government.
Microsoft's Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) was first launched in 2001 and quite simply the technology has moved on. Because a number of users are still accessing web-pages using this out-dated browser, developers such as Cuttlefish are restricted in the use of newer techniques and methods that deliver a richer web experience.
Whilst we welcome this new pressure on consumers to upgrade to a newer version of Internet Explorer, or even an alternative browser, we will continue to test our projects on a wide selection of browsers, including IE6.
Where possible we allow IE6 to "fail gracefully" and still be usable by those 10-15% of users still using the the ageing browser, until ultimately these usage statistics drop even further.

Located in the heart of Leicestershire and the National Forest, Coalville is changing into a modern market town – a place which residents and businesses are proud to call their home.
As with many towns across the country that grew as mining towns, Coalville is starting to re-invent itself. We have ideas as to how the town could develop and how it could draw inspiration from the National Forest, but we now need you to get involved...

We were very pleased to hear that the Charnwood Borough Council website has been assessed in the 2009 SOCITM Better Connected survey as being one of only 13 Shire District Councils in England to have a website with "Excellent Content".
We moved Charnwood over to a new version of our Content Management System last year and it's great to see that the hard work, both within the council and at Cuttlefish, has paid off Well done all.
