Humor BBC News reports "Mark your diaries for 4 March because in Denver the funeral arrangements are well underway for the planned passing that day of Internet Explorer 6". There's a phobia of being buried alive but I think in this case, it's the living that are all too quick to be shoveling the dirt over as IE6 doesn't officially die until 2014 when Microsoft pull the life-support.

Why not use Google Frame for IE?
http://code.google.com/intl/nl-NL/chrome/chromeframe/

I don't see people having problems with this, they also need to install Silverlight, Flash Updates and other plugins to use all their content on the web.

Why not use Google Frame for IE? I don't see people having problems with this


Actually, I do see them having problems with it -- the sort of people who still use IE6, especially the corporate types, are reluctant to install anything new. Many corporate workstations are locked down completely, so users can't do it, and the company certainly wouldn't authorise wasting the IT department's time rolling out something the business sees as untested and unnecessary.

Your so right, most of the IE6 users are the Enterprise, which still have legacy IE6 applications.

Because the people who are still running IE6 *don't* install all those plugins. They're either people who don't know what a browser or plugin is and just click on the E to access the internet. Or they're corporate environments stuck with an old version of IE due to some terrible web-app that won't work on anything newer - and those certainly don't go installing random plugins either.
