Is It Time To Drop IE 5.x?

“37 Signals”: “just announced” that they will not be supporting Internet Explorer 5.x on their sites anymore. 37 Signals is the company behind the innovative Ta-Da (“mentioned earlier”), “Basecamp”, and the soon-to-be-announced “Backpack”. Most of what 37 Signals does can be considered online applications (they’re drinking the “ajax”) so this move makes sense.

But what about marketers? Is it time for marketing sites to give up on old browsers? What do your stats show? What percent of your marketing site’s traffic comes from IE5.x?
