Microsoft Declares IE6 Dead

Microsoft baked a cake and held a small party to celebrate the fact that less than 1% of the Internet uses Internet Explorer 6 anymore. The company has been trying to get people to adopt IE8 and IE9.

IE6 use remains high in some countries, including China, where it accounts for up to 25% of all browser usage. Some experts look to Google's Chrome to overtake the browser market, in America at least, this year or next. Firefox was originally thought to be in the best position to overtake Internet Explorer, but it appears Chrome is gaining a larger share of the market more quickly.
