Microsoft joins the “no more IE6″ cause Published on March 7, 2011
Microsoft, trough the website IE6 Count down (ie6countdown.com/index.html) is “asking” people to stop using IE6 once and for all.
From the IE6 Count down website:
Why move off of Internet Explorer 6?
“There are many benefits of upgrading to a newer version of Internet Explorer – improved speed, tabbed browsing, and better privacy settings to name a few.
The web has changed significantly over the past 10 years. The browser has evolved to adapt to new web technologies, and the latest versions of Internet Explorer help protect you from new attacks and threats.
We recommend that Internet Explorer 6 users upgrade to a newer version of Internet Explorer for a safer browsing experience.”
Now this a good time to start using my “No More IE6″ free Word Press plugin: wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nomoreie6/
