    My concern for rolling this to my main traffic sites was backwards compatibility. I posted a link to our test site and asked XP users specifically to test it. No one came back with any problems, they all said it ran fine. Digging it seems they had self selected not to use IE anymore. I've no doubt some corporate environments still enforce IE6 on XP, but it's not an issue I think to be held back by any longer for most sites.

    That is one heck of a good starting year. I hope they can maintain it beyond there expectations, after all free isn't ever free for someone...
