Goodbye Internet Explorer 6

With Google first announcing that Google Apps will no longer support IE6 – and now YouTube saying that March 13th is the last day for official IE6 support, the writing is on the wall. IE6 was released around the same time as Windows XP way back in 2001/2003 timeframe. At the time, it worked as a good browser, but time has left it behind (so has Microsoft). IE6 drives web developers crazy. It is the one browser which developers have to sit and write a whole heap of CSS exceptions for and is generally old technology. To set the web free, it has to go.

There are a whole host of alternative browsers out there including Internet Explorer 8, Firefox3, Safari, Opera and Google Chrome. So if you know someone who is hanging onto IE6, help them make the leap!  (20% of all browser users use IE6)

BTW: Here is a link to a IE6 funeral – people really really want it gone!
