IE6 Slips Below 1% Market Share Mark In The USA

IE team cooks another cake.

Following Austria, Poland, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway, United States has joined a list of countries that have now less than 1% of the Internet Explorer 6 users.

To celebrate such occasion, Microsoft had to order another cake, which was probably eaten by the Steve Ballmer himself.

    China & India are the most of IE 6 users. I think – Microsoft, Google , Yahoo  all should join and run a ad campaign there to move to the latest browser and educate them.

    people in eastern asia are forced to use IE 6

    in south korea they need it for purchasing stuff on the internet, i dont know about others

    i asume that they dont know or care about alternatives, and i dont care about them – after a year or two IE 6 support in the western world will be completely dropped and asians will find out that more browsers exist

    • IE & Opera Fanboy

      I kinda agree. Western world should aggressively force it. In India no system forces it, it just they are all using pirated Windows or Government machines no one cares to update the system.

      Since IE6 came on XP, its share is much higher, at least from what I’ve seen on my website.
