Google BBC News reports: Google has begun to phase out support for Internet Explorer 6, the browser identified as the weak link in a "sophisticated and targeted" cyber attack on the search engine. The firm said from 1 March some of its services, such as Google Docs, would not work "properly" with the browser. It recommended individuals and firms upgrade "as soon as possible".

IE6 Users

According to my knowledge there are three set of IE 6 users
(1) Enterprise users who doesn't have money to upgrade their existing softwares
(2) Home users, who doesn't know to use Windows Update to keep their computers upto date.
(3) Pirated Windows XP users for whom the latest IE or windows update are not available.

For all of the above three users it is very hard to move them to latest.
Now that Windows 7 is going sucessful in the market, this would encourage them to move to latest windows OS where they get latest IE 8.
Educating users is very difficult.
