    It’s good to see big players such as Google and Facebook taking action against IE6 and the people that dare to still use it. I hope more follow.

    Good see this happening. IE6 was a good browser, but not for today.  Only Facebook , Youtube, kinda companies can do force people to update.
    Now we have more good browsers.
