Microsoft finally decides to encourage users to ditch Internet Explorer 6.

Microsoft has come out with a neat hotsite showing the current world usage of the old Internet Explorer 6 (IE6), and encouraging visitors to ditch it for an upgrade.

The idea is to get users to upgrade to the latest version: IE9 which will fix many of the long standing bugs and limitations of a browser that is the pet hate of most web designers.

The campaign urges users to upgrade and help lower the IE6 usage to 1% of the world IE users. People are also encouraged to join the campaign by embedding a banner to their site that detects the user's browser version.

Having struggled for many years with this 10 year old dinosaur, which is often used in public institutions, government and "old school" private companies, we welcome this initiative with open arms.
