-For more than a decade, Internet Explorer 6 was the biggest pain for web developers causing headaches with non-standard APIs, buggy rendering and missing support for nearly all modern web features. LuckilyIE 6 no longer has the market penetration it once had. **DokuWiki no longer supports Internet Explorer 6**.+Even though recent Internet Explorer versions became better and better they still lack a lot of features other browsers already supportWith the introduction of the Google Chrome browser, the speed of browser development changed dramatically. Chrome and Firefox are now automatically updated about every few months, while Microsoft still needs years to release new versions of Internet Explorer. **If you have a choice, do //__not__// use Internet Explorer**.
  
-Unfortunately more recent Internet Explorer versions still lack a lot of features other browsers already support. With the introduction of the Google Chrome browser, the speed of browser development changed dramatically. Chrome and Firefox are now automatically updated about every few months, while Microsoft still needs years to release new versions of Internet Explorer. **If you have a choice, do not use Internet Explorer**.+If you don'have a choice, you can still install Chrome without admin rights, or you can use any [[http://portableapps.com/apps/internet|portable version of supported browsers]].
  
-If you don't have a choice, you can still install [[http://code.google.com/chrome/chromeframe/|Chrome Frame]] to get a much better experience in IE6-9. You don't need administrative permissions to install it! +DokuWiki developers take care to make DokuWiki **usable** in Internet Explorer or higher. But not all features may be available in IE. Certain design elements (eg. rounded corners) or advanced functionally (like drag'n'drop uploading multiple files) may be missing when using Internet Explorer.

 We ask all company **IT administrators: please provide your users with alternative browsers**. Giving users better tools, allows them to do their jobs better. Having a modern browser is an important part of the modern workplace. And yes, there are ways for automatic, unattended setup of eg. [[http://www.mozilla.org/|Firefox]]. We ask all company **IT administrators: please provide your users with alternative browsers**. Giving users better tools, allows them to do their jobs better.
