Internet Explorer 6 Market Share to Reach 10% in 2010

By | June 3, 2010 | 2 Comments


If we analyze Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 market share trend, the following conclusion can be made:

Internet Explorer 6 Market Share to Reach 10% in 2010

IE6 lost 13.02 points of market share since May, 2009. That’s about 1.085 point per month. Since there are still 6 months till the end of 2010, we can presume this:

17.13 – 1.085 * 6.51 = 10.62

Add plausible Internet Explorer 9 release in late 2010/Early 2011 (just speculations), and it might even drop below 10%.

Now that’s a nice Christmas gift.

    Sooner, rather than later, IE6 will be only used by corporate entities to use their ActiceX software. Basically, when that happens, it will have about 3% of market share, and people will stop developing for them (except for the sites aimed at corporate entities).
     
    I can’t really say when this will happen, in my opinion, because I expect a few major sites to drop IE6 support until the end of the year… YouTube and Google Docs have done it, already. It’s going down people!
