“10 years ago a browser was born, It’s name was Internet Explorer 6. Now that we’re in 2011, in an era of modern web standards, it’s time to say goodbye”… I’m not saying this, Microsoft is. This is the first thing you will read in a website specially designed by Microsoft for the campaign of getting the worldwide usage of Internet Explorer 6 down below 1%.
