It’s not just web 2.0 developers making the push away from IE6 anymore. Microsoft is publishing the stats, and even they want people off of Internet Explorer 6 (IE6).

Join the cause by pasting your own “STOP using this out-of-date browser” banner (provided by Microsoft):

<!-- [if lt IE 7]>
<div style=' clear: both; height: 59px; padding:0 0 0 15px; position: relative;'> <a href="" alt=""><img src="" border="0" height="42" width="820" alt="You are using an outdated browser. For a faster, safer browsing experience, upgrade for free today." /></a></div>

IE6 usage is trending down, at 11.4% today compared to 18.7% one year ago:
