Even Microsoft hates IE6

Friends don't let friends use IE6.  They get them to use Firefox or Chrome instead.

Viewing that with Noscript is amusing.

100% of the world was using Internet Explorer 6, which was 7.2 percentage points less than the previous year

But yes, there's no serious reason to support IE6 in English any longer. Or IE7 for that matter, which is even less popular.

I saw that for a brief flash before it updated.  Yes, I laughed.  :D

Youtube dropped support for IE6 last year,and lots of other sites are likely unworkable with it, when you think of the amount of embedded HD graphics/video in various formats.

I just updated the folks' laptops to Firefox from IE6. The excuse I had to get them out of that rut? The AARP website wouldn't open properly using IE6 (on one of their computers; it did on the other). Easy enough to use my mad Witch Doctor Fu to convince them it was entirely the fault of the browser and change them over to Firefox, where it worked just fine. Hooray~
