Well, with Windows XP IE7 is for sure bundled, as it's installed
automatically with Windows Update (probably IE8 is also automatically
installed, by I lost interest in Windows system befores IE8 was
released, so I'm not sure about that).
And keep in mind in most of cases making site working on IE6 means
"rewrite site with using broken technics, detect if IE6 is used and
present second version of site for IE". I don't think it's worth it.
Even YouTube doesn't work on IE6. If even Google can say "we don't
support IE6", then Qi Hardware should be able to do that too ;)
And PS, keep in mind that i'm just community member, don't think my
opinion is Qi's one.
