IE6: The Browser That Wouldn’t Die

ITBusinessEdge: IE6 – The Browser That Wouldn’t Die

New Web traffic data shows that companies are the ones still using IE6. The explanation is that they have home-baked Web apps that only work in the no-longer-supported browser. If you’re one, maybe it’s time to bite the bullet – before IE6 bites you.

“Despite repeated calls to stop using Internet Explorer 6, the browser continues to hold a market share similar to, or even higher than, more advanced browsers such as Safari and Chrome.

Chitika, a search-based online advertising network, conducted a new study that tracked the hour-by-hour market shares of the leading browsers. And you guessed it: IE6 was ranked the fourth-most-used browser (13 percent) during peak business hours of the day. Use of IE6 drops to “less than 6 percent” after business hours.”
