The Internet Explorer 6 Countdown, by Microsoft

March 4 filed in web

Fascinating new site and campaign by Microsoft to finally and officially wind down Internet Explorer 6:

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.

Microsoft is currently showing 12% worldwide usage, 10 years after the product was launched. The largest offenders skewing that percentage are China (34%), South Korea (24.8%) and India (12.3%). Luckily, the USA is a tiny 2.9%.

However, if you cater to any of these asian audiences, you might throw this lovely banner on your site and beg them to upgrade.
