Tech News : IE6 Countdown
Remember that crappy piece of software which was dubbed the worst Web Browser ever ?? Yes, We are Talking about IE6 !!! Microsoft has launched a new website ie6countdown.com to request people to stop using it and upgrade to the latest IE version. They call it ” The Internet Explorer 6 Countdown – Moving the world off Internet Explorer 6 “. I couldn’t agree more!!! 😀
Even though it is dubbed the “worst browser ever”, Here are some statistics which show that ppl still like to hang on to it :
Here is what the website says:
10 years ago a browser was born.
Its name was Internet Explorer 6. Now that we’re in 2011, in an era of modern web standards, it’s time to say goodbye.
The 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.
