10 years ago a browser was born.
Its name was Internet Explorer 6. Now that weâ€™re in 2011, in an era of modern web standards, itâ€™s time to say goodbye.
We all know that Internet Explorer is outdated and that you should move away from it to a newer browser immediately. For security, safety as well as fro compatibility reasons.
Therefore we created the The Internet Explorer 6 Countdown page with the goal to get Internet Explorer 6 market share below 1% â€“ currently it seems to be still at 12% which is way too much.
If I look at the statistics of my blog, this is currently the distribution of the browsers hitting this page:
Looking at Internet Explorer versions, it seems that you are security conscious people – not really a surprise:
So, we are better than the rest of still 4% of you are using a very, very old version. And by the way 16% are using a version-1. That this data cannot be reflecting the real world is clear as I do not expect 1/3 of the people using Internet Explorer being already on the Release Candidate of Internet Explorer 9.
Therefore I added my blog here to the IE6Countdown initiative. If you see this banner when looking at the blog:
I would like you immediately to go to this download page to get the latest version of Internet Explorer and to help to drive the IE6 share below 1%!!!
