Many sites have been slowly crying off of IE 6 support, and big boys like Twitter, Facebook, Digg and YouTube are joining the action. What is interesting about the YouTube story is the placement of the upgrade buttons.
Twitter took the tact of “if the user is using browser X, I will just prompt them to get the latest version”. If you are in IE 6, prompt for IE 8.
YouTube sandwiches IE 8 in between Chrome (nice prominent position right next to the message ;) and Firefox. I wonder if anyone did click-through testing on the placement? The same chaps who change the color of ad colors? :)
