In spite of its weak security, poor performance, and woeful standards compliance, a lot of people are still using Internet Explorer 6 as their Web browser of choice. A large part of this user base seems to be made up of corporate users. According to Stuart Strathdee, Chief Security Adviser at Microsoft Australia, one of the reasons for this continued usage is that companies have found a virtue in one of the browser's biggest flaws: it doesn't work properly with social networking sites like Facebook.

Ineptitude is probably the wrong word. IE6 simply wasnt designed for modern web technology.

The technology in 2001 was modern at that time and IE6 simply wasn't designed for that modern web technology

We're not talking about 2001, we're talking about 2010 and the need to keep up to date.

IE6 WAS designed for Modern Technology, back when it was released. Since technology back then was 'modern'.

IE6 just needs to die.

Yes, Windows XP comes with IE6 (Vista came with IE7 and 7 came with IE8).
