We're already using IE7, and assume we would be upgrading to IE8. It's
sad to see the huge following that IE6 still has. I'd imagine soon
many people will simply give up IE6 support. There has to be some
cutoff point for backwards compatibility... The time and effort put in
to hacking IE6 is such a burden on developers everywhere. Sadly it
seems many RB users companies don't see the benefits of upgrading,
though... I'd personally love to see the support for IE6 dropped so we
can have even faster / better upgrades to an already amazing tool.

Thanks for all the hard work!
