The death of IE6, this time by Microsoft!

Ie3-death

Microsoft has taken a huge step by creating this website in order to promote the decrease of the IE6 Market Share. 
As stated by the Microsoft people themselves:

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. “

The website has a very cool map that shows a live map of the dead Browser. It is interesting to see that most of the IE6 users are in China. Maybe that is why it held so strong all these years.

Anyway, well done Microsoft! Well done!
