Countdown to the end of Internet Explorer 6

Posted to Maps  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

If you’ve ever designed for the Web, you know what a pain it is to get your work to look right in Internet Explorer 6. It’s outdated, and it’s not standards compliant, so a design that looks good in Firefox, Chrome, or Safari might look horrible in IE6 (and subsequent versions for that matter). The good news is that Microsoft has started the countdown to the end with a map that shows IE6 browser share around the world. Twelve percent of the world still uses the browser as of February 2011, with a big chunk of that from China.
