Even Microsoft Wants to rid the world of IE6 now

Posted on by Tim Igoe

10 years ago now, Microsoft unleashed Internet Explorer 6 on the world… even now it is still a heavily used browser, even after 2 upgrades have been released and a 3rd is on the way this year.

Microsoft themselves have now created a site to countdown to the final death of the browser http://www.ie6countdown.com/ This site is intended to encourage users to finally upgrade from Internet Explorer 6 to a more recent browser.

There are major benefits to doing so, like a much better and more secure internet experience however a lot of large corporations are still stuck on Windows 2000 which can’t have any newer version than IE6.
