Now it's time to reduce the library size by removing IE6 support (or at least, having a way to easily remove this support).

This project still supports IE 6, and thus we are not going to start having multiple versions of the library some with less support than others. The jQuery project still values being an IE 6 library.

This idea comes up very regularly, and it is not, at the present time, something the jQuery team is considering. There is almost no code in the library that exists solely to support IE6. Instead, most IE-specific code deals with IE 6 and 7, and there is just as much, if not more, special code in the library to handle Safari oddities as IE. jQuery is a cross browser library and IE6, much as it sucks, is still in wide use in many circles. We'd all like to live in a world where IE6 is a thing of the past, but until it is, jQuery cannot remove support for it in order to save a KB or two.
