Technology News reported in July 2009 that a YouTube website would soon cease to support the popular Internet Explorer 6 internet browser until that week, almost no one knew that Google's official decision was not owned by YouTube, but it was a real plot by a small group of YouTube programmers who were no longer able to deal with an old fashioned browser. We could lose our jobs, but their move was really happy.
Internet Explorer 6 (hereafter referred to as IE 6) in July 2009 had a market share of around 25% and was the most frequently used web browser after the latest IE 7 and IE 8.
As IE 6 is already very old, it was released in August 2001 along with Microsoft Windows XP's legendary operating system, but not the best developers of modern Web applications, but because they still use so many people, it was they must suffer.

Among them were developers of the YouTube video site. Like this week former YouTube engineer Chris Zacharias revealed on his website, Was literally hate by IE 6.
Due to its outdated infrastructure, almost every time you add new or updated functionality to YouTube, problems have arisen and with additional work for programmers. But as YouTube continues to visit nearly 20 per cent of users through IE 6, Google has not considered closing Google support since 2006.
Before they all went crazy, they thought of a cunning plan
IE6's frustration has grown to the point that they have decided to act alone.
A small team of YouTube programmers, of which Zacharias was a member, has drawn up a cunning plan: only IE 6 users will show that the browser will no longer be supported. They hoped they would scare them enough to move to more modern graziers.

The Croat insisted that he would be the one who will write a definite line of the program code
Co-worker Zacharias from Croatia, the most rebellious of all YouTube developers, was introduced to the system by the program code that showed the announcement, although he was a quiet and nice person, Zacharias wrote. "It was a great personal achievement for him," he added.
Everyone who took part was aware that if anything went wrong, they could lose their jobs in a minute. Because they had unique privileges for adapting without hindrance even the most basic elements of YouTube, their heads in Google did not know what they were planning.

Although this is not the first to give the best to IE 6, it's probably YouTube that was buried t
On July 15, 2009, the day after the first IE, the 6 users began to see a notice of support, some big global technological media previously reportedYouTube will no longer work in Internet Explorer 6:
Given the fact that IE 6 despite a steep decline in market share in the account IE 7fresh pure IE 8 and competitive browsers, in the first place Firefox and also Google Chrome, it was still extremely common, it was great news.
There was YouTube by Digg which is the second major website that gave support to the browser. Later, YouTube seems to be the right place to start the end of IE 6.
Because in other Google departments, they did not know that YouTube developers had acted without the blessing of their bosses, they put pressure on their leadership to enable them to publish a similar warning.
The various Google services then began to inform users that they will no longer work in an outdated browser soon.
Not only were they punished, they were almost crying
Because of her courage, the team of programmers never dragged things up, and even more, their message to IE 6 users let the world know that the browser was counting the days. YouTube and Google were followed by many other technology giants, and in just a month, Internet Explorer 6 users had almost halved.
The manager drove us to the beer and, when we had to promise that we would never do such a thing, he was struggling hard to stay serious.
Today, almost anyone else uses Internet Explorer 6: In April, she had only another share of 0.19% of the market.
