Internet Explorer 6 User Rates Falling Fast!
I normally hate exclamation points though I couldn’t help but use one here. Internet Explorer 6 user rates are down to 13% according to w3schools.com. The number of IE6 users has been falling by about 1% per month for the last year or so which is music to my ears. I’m officially stating that I will not support IE6 once the number falls below 10%. I’ve spent many, many, many hours dealing with version 6’s inconsistencies and I feel that it’s time to move on. That being said, I think it’s only right to offer IE6 support and testing for a nominal fee. (since I can’t collect that money from Microsoft). By my calculations, IE6 should be off of my books by early 2010. Not a bad run for a browser released eight years ago.
