To be honest I think that Microsoft should abandon the browser market completely FOCS (Firefox Opera Chrome and Safari) have all committed more or less to the W3C standards au contraire to Microsoft who was bending the standards to their own needs or agenda, and although they announce full html 5 support in IE 9, I'm curious to see what will happen, as it will also compete with their silverlight initiative

With microsoft's absence on the tablet, and phone market I hope to see a more than significant drop for MS browsers as a whole.

Having said that, my employer still has IE 6 as standard.
For personal development I completely ignore the MS browsers (but I don't have a very commercial attitude I'm afraid).

regards,
Jeroen.

Is it not listed in MS's extended support offering on XP machines till some time in 2013? It will be a while yet I fear.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
