IE6 Still Survives and Usage has Grown Over the Past Two Months!
Posted: 14 May 2012 04:12 AM PDT
Almost fourteen months ago, I wrote about the
IECountdown – which was like Microsoft’s official goodbye to IE6. It was a good initiative by Microsoft,
I decided to check on some stats and see if things have really changed or is IE6 still proving very difficult for Microsoft to kill off.
I decided to use statistics from NetMarketShare the same source that Microsoft uses to show IE6 usage on the IE6 Countdown website.
Some Internet Explorer Shockers!
Internet Explorer has a very fragmented market share based on their browser versions.
For example, most Firefox and Chrome users are on the latest versions of their browser.
On Chrome, users do not even really notice when their browsers automatically updates to newer versions.
I must say that Microsoft has recently woken up to the horrendous reputation of IE.
It even has called it the ‘Browser we love to hate’ in a advertisement campaign.
Hopefully the recent spike in IE6 usage is just a blip before its eventual demise.
Do drop in your comments.
