Hi,

GWT 2.1.1 dropped support for firefox 1.0.

What do you think about next GWT release dropping support for ie6?
(while introducing support for ie9 would be great)

I don't know about dropping ie6, but Microsoft is really promoting ie9 all over the web. I feel we'll really need that support.. http://code.google.com/p/google-web-toolkit/issues/detail?id=5125&colspec=ID%20Type%20Status%20Owner%20Milestone%20Summary%20Stars

Certainly NOT. There are those of us with customers who (for various reasons of their own) cannot at this time retire IE6. 

Luckily, those folks are few, but they still exist.

And they generally are big corporate structures, who pay well ;-)

I am very aware of that (working for very big bank which is still at IE6)... Something has to be done. And there are already possibilities like Google Chrome Frame.
