Microsoft encouraging IE6 demise

Microsoft have launched a website ie6countdown.com to encourage and map the shift away from IE6, the bane of web developers around the world. "We know that web developers are spending too much time supporting Internet Explorer 6. We understand, and we're here to help. Join us in moving Internet Explorer 6 users to a modern browser", they say.

This is great news and not a moment too soon. Having the endorsement of Microsoft behind you when you explain to clients that really nobody should be using IE6 carries great weight.

I hope this campaign is a success, and I expect to be seeing (errr, if I was using IE6) this banner on many big-brand sites very soon:
