Last month Google was one of the first to put a nail to Internet Explorer 6 and even though there was a real funeral for IE 6 in Denver, Colorado, the world needs big players to end support for this stone-age browser. The irony is that even Microsoft discourages its use, but the problem is that 20% of Internet users are still browsing the web with it. Anyway, Amazon has joined this fight in which we all benefit from, developing websites without technical barriers and legacy support of half-cooked products that were never meant to live this long.

Internet Explorer 6 no longer supported
Mar 22, 2010
We would like to inform you that as of the end of March 2010, we will no longer develop Seller Account pages to be compliant with Internet Explorer 6.
Internet Explorer 6 is no longer supported by Microsoft and is widely considered to be obsolete. It has multiple security flaws and is considerably slower than recent browsers.
This decision allows us to use all modern web development technologies and create an up-to-date user experience.
Although existing seller tools might continue to work for some time with older browsers, if you are still using Internet Explorer 6, we strongly recommend updating your browser to a more recent version now to make sure all Seller Account pages work properly on your computer.
If you are unsure which browser version you are running or how to update your brower, please contact your local system administrator or help desk for assistance.
