Internet Explorer at less than 50% usage...and there was much rejoicing

IE 6 About screen

Internet Explorer is now at less than 50% of web usage. Best news I’ve heard in a long, long time.

Internet Explorer is still an important browser, with a userbase large enough that few developers can afford to ignore—though sites that don’t need global appeal may well be able to safely ignore Internet Explorer 6—and at current rates it will remain important for a few years yet. But until and unless Microsoft makes its browser appeal to the influential geek demographic, it looks as if Internet Explorer has nowhere to go but down.

Die, IE6, Die.
