That's right, even Microsoft is asking people to please, pretty please stop using Internet Explorer 6.

Microsoft has set up this Internet Explorer 6 Countdown page, complete with charts of those stubborn countries still using it and what you can do to help people move on to better browsers.

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.

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.
