Internet Explorer 6 Market Share Finally Falls Under 5%

Quote:
The Internet Explorer 6 death watch continues, but the end is near. Microsoft’s ancient browser may still haunt web developers’ nightmares, but according to the latest data from Net Applications, its global market share has now finally dipped under 5 percent.

Even Microsoft will be quite happy to see this, especially given that, for Internet Explorer as a whole, the last month was pretty good (though it still has IE6 at 6.1 percent global market share).

That's sort of crazy to think people are still using such an old version,
They didn't even show ie7

IE 7 shows up if you change the chart from Pie to Bar (1.37%).

What worries me most is that it took this long to fall that far.

Very cool,
Still a little disturbing though,
These people certainly aren't using gmail... probably a herd of x-p users ?

would think so xp users with updates disabled maybe because they think WU is evil or because they are ignorant.

There are always people who think some older version of a program is the best version. We see it when they switch from XP to 7 and want to get some ancient program to work. A Guy

Windows 8.1 Pro + Windows 10
 
 

Also some companies use old vendor software which only works with older versions of IE.
