IE6 Funeral takes place on March 4th. Sadly there won’t be any such event here just yet thanks to Ireland’s dial-up districts. A snapshot of browser stats from X Comms’ busiest sites show 14% still using IE6 compared to 23% on IE7 and 28% on IE8.

A year to the week since the ‘Joe Rospars talk turned FiannaFail.ie‘ website launch and the party in power are looking for a Director of Communications – don’t rush all at once, now.
FOWD London launched a (beautiful) new website yesterday with details of the conference and workshops coming up at the event in May and tickets are on sale right now.
“Super-duper early bird” tickets were fantastic value starting at £235 but have been snapped up faster than you can say “jQuery”.
There’s still some “early bird” offers available starting at £470 (saving you about £200) so if you’re into it, get booking.
There’s a really great line-up across two different “tracks” including presentations and workshops from Dan Cederholm (Simple Bits), Brendan Dawes (Magnetic North), Web Standardistas and Molly Holzschlag (Molly.com).
Topics to be covered include HTML5, CSS3 (implementation, graceful degradation, design), jQuery (essentials and advanced), Google Analytics, UX and usability, how to run a successful web design business and lots more in between.
