Microsoft is advocating users abandoning Internet Explorer 6 and to upgrade by launching a Website that details how the aging browser is slow and insecure.That Website, “The Internet Explorer 6 Countdown,” uses data from analytics firm Net Applications to break down IE6 usage around the world. Despite its tiny market share in countries like the United States (2.9 percent) and Canada (3.3 percent), the browser holds a substantial portion of the market in much of Asia, including China (34.5 percent), South Korea (24.8 percent) and Japan (10.3 percent).In its desperation to kill IE6, Microsoft is encouraging users to spread the word about upgrading to a new browser.This is a good initiative step taken from Microsoft and we at techtimely, do support the initiative to the farthest. We request our readers not to use IE6 ever and not to let others use it. Please take your time to explain if you find someone at internet cafes or homes using the age old browser on their PCs.
