JScript 5.7 14

[Revised to not sound as nagging as I always sound]

The JScript 5.7 patch is now being pushed to an IE6 computer near you…

IE6 uses Jscript 5.6 which has some design flaws when it comes to garbage collection. This is just a small issue for small applications but it is a large issue for large applications. Gmail is a large application and the GC problems caused IE6 to perform unacceptably slow. After talking to the JScript team they were really cooperative and they saw the need to push JScript 5.7 as an update to IE6. It is now being installed on all Windows computers. Expect Gmail to work better on an IE6 computer near you after a few more rounds of QA.
