Microsoft says goodbye to IE6

10 years ago a browser was born. Its name was Internet Explorer 6 (often known as IE6). Now that we are in 2012, in an era of modern web standards, its time to say goodbye to IE6.


IE6 was the most widely used web browser during its tenure and attained a total market share of nearly 90% during 2002-2003. It only slowly declined up to 2007, when it lost about half its market share to Windows Internet Explorer 7 and Mozilla Firefox between late 2006 to 2008.

    Interesting! Another reason why Ie6 lost market is due to the introduction of many other browsers such as safari, opera etc. Ie6 was relatively slow as compared to the newer versions of Internet explorer.
