Happy Birthday IE6…And Goodnight…Please?

It was on this day in 2001 that internet explorer 6 was released to the world, and who knew the pain and suffering it would cause all web-masters and designers out there?

Despite numerous online campaigns for individuals, but especially companies to upgrade from ie6, including Mashable’s ie6 must die plea, that went viral on Twitter, the ‘ancient’ web browser still holds around a 15% share of the browser market.

You’ve had your fair share of browsing time now ie6, it’s time for you to curl up in your tartan blanket and let the compatible browsers out there show us the web.

Great graphic! I was just contemplating why so many web designers go through so much trouble trying to cater to this dinosaur… So it occurred to me that I don’t have to! And I decided to find a suitable graphic to communicate my feeling. I personally refuse to do it anymore! I want to use this or a similar graphic to indicate to my visitors that they need to toss the garbage where it belongs. If they want to see the content on my page, they need to comply with me and the other 85%… Not the other way around!
Thanks, Johannes
