Are you still using Internet Explorer (IE) 6 or the earlier version? Microsoft wants you to upgrade now.Microsoft created a site “The Internet Explorer 6 Countdown” with the target to reduce IE6 users to less than 1% worldwide.
This website is dedicated to watching Internet Explorer 6 usage drop to less than 1% worldwide, so more websites can choose to drop support for Internet Explorer 6, saving hours of work for web developers.
Currently, there’s 12% IE6 users worldwide. China has the most IE6 users (34.5%), 2nd is S. Korea (24.5%, and India is the 3rd (12.3%).
A check to my site’s statistic, 11.5% of my IE visitors are still using Internet Explorer 6. I joined the cause to reduce IE6 users by putting a banner on my site, which will only be shown if you are using an outdated Internet Explorer (earlier than IE7).
My two cents
Glad to see that Microsoft is putting an effort to dump the outdated web browser. I only use Internet Explorer to download other web browsers. I am using Google Chrome, which automatic update in the background whenever there’s a new version. How about you?
