Friday, January 2nd, 2009>p>At a New Years Eve party, a friend help up a drink and toasted to his company deciding to discontinue direct support of IE 6 in 2009, and letting users know that the site may work better with IE 7 or another latest browser.
Then, Asa Dotzer puts up a chart of the IE 6 numbers:
Still far too high a percentage and enough to make you grown. Also, the last few pounds are the hardest to lose. The good news for me is that on most Web applications that I personally work, and definitely those that I work on in early 2009 will have much different numbers.
Maybe IE 8, Windows 7, and the great new browser war will help, or maybe some percentage is for lost computer souls.
