Microsoft’s site Ie6countdown.com is not the first attempt to retire the browser – in May 2010, when Microsoft last tried to enroll netizens into its cause, Redmond said, that using IE6 is like drinking nine-year-old milk because of the risks involved.
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
