U.S. IE6 Usage Drops Below 1%

Posted on January 3, 2012

IE LogoUsage of IE6 has dropped below the 1% mark in the U.S. It is still over 7% worldwide. Microsoft is eagerly trying to get people off the old version of its Internet Explorer browsers.
E6 has been the punch line of browser jokes for a while, and we've been as eager as anyone to see it go away. In fact, we launched the IE6 Countdown site last March to help accelerate the process. Less than a year later, I'm thrilled to say that the United States has joined the ranks of Austria, Poland, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway in dropping below 1% usage of IE6.
Microsoft has a website, The Internet Explorer 6 Countdown, that contains data about IE6 usage and encourages people to upgrade to a newer version of IE.
