Internet Explorer 6 will not die

Looking at the web browser usage statistics reported by Coremetrics across our retailers Internet Explorer 6 usage (16%) is greater than that of FireFox 3 usage (15%). In fact Internet Explorer 6 usage is greater than that of, Safari, Chrome and Internet Explorer 8 combined.

According to Wikipedia, Internet Explorer 6 was launched on 27th August 2001. The technology is nearly 8 years old! Why people do not upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer or install another web browser I will never understand. Modern web browsers provide a far superior experience and are much safer.

Web developers everywhere wish that Internet Explorer 6 would just die so they no longer have to develop ugly hacks.
