The browser with the longest period of life lives its latest days. Microsoft wants to let go Internet Explorer 6 therefore they have begun a campaign by launching a “death clock” on ie6countdown.com. Their goal is to drop down the IE 6 usage to less than 1% worldwide. In addition to this, Microsoft also offers to site developers an embedded banner for their sites to inform their users who use IE6, that this browser lacks support for modern web standards.
This is not the first time Microsoft tried to stop the official usage of IE6. Back in 2009 they have started a similar campaign to make the developers stop using IE6. After the first campaign, Microsoft realized that the total population still using IE6 was around 27%.
