Internet Explorer 6 is the bane of web developers existence.  The browser doesn’t support web standards that have become common the last few years, and making sites work in IE 6 adds significant time to the web development process.  Despite the release of IE 7 in 2005 and IE 8 in 2009, a full 10% of users still use IE 6.  In other words, it is still too big of a group to ignore.

The chart below shows a breakdown of the decline in IE 6 this year.  I take this trend line as good news, as IE 6 has lost 8% of market share so far this year.  Here’s hoping 2010 is the year IE 6 finally goes away for good.
