Internet Explorer Let's continue the browser talk for a while. Let's move from the pinnacle of browsing, all the way down to the very drainage pit: Internet Explorer 6. To me, Internet Explorer 6 is that annoying zombie that just won't die that chops off 80 of your health in a grueling midnight Left 4 Dead expert session. Microsoft may not say so outright, but they seem to be implying they agree with me.

Or maybe a mass dropping of IE6 support by Web sites.

Finding out that your browser does not support important Web sites should be a good motivator for people to update their browser (or to finally be courageous enough to ask a tech friend to do it for them).

Example: Google ceased supporting Firefox 1.x several months ago, whilst it is newer than IE6.

(Granted, for Google Docs, there is the workaround to add "browserok=true" to the line, for Gmail there is the HTML display. But Google Spreadsheets do not work at all.)
