Why is it dead?!?!?!? IE6 works fine still. I just tested it out on my old XP machine. I don't get why they are having a funeral when it still browses the web.

IE6 isn't dead. We have tons of customers still trying to run our software on computers running IE6 and most of these people have no intention on upgrading their software either. It's sad, but it's 100% true.

Agree with Drewpul. There is nothing really, really wrong with IE6. It just doesn't have all the modern features (tabbed browsing, ect.) that newer browsers have. It is still one of the most used browsers. You can find it in schools, libraries, gov. offices, ect.

Aside from a massive lack of security, that is I'm sure that is what you meant to say.

I work with people all day who refuse (or don't know how...or don't dare) tp update IE6. It's sickening. Every computer I have to take an hour to remove a virus or malware....I update it for them.....usually to Chrome...then show them how to use it.

Right now that is.... but eventually ie8 could have just as many security issues. Ie6 came out in 2001, so hackers have had nine years to find all the security holes.

Not to mention the lack of support for modern web standards, which restricts a lot of what can be developed if so many people are still using IE6.
