'Kill IE6' campaign gains force; 30M Web users get switch pitch - Donna's

'You are using an outdated browser' offer follows similar moves by Facebook,
YouTube

The campaign to kill Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) gathered steam this week when
a California site builder led nearly 40 Web start-ups to urge their users to
ditch Microsoft's eight-year-old browser.

Microsoft acknowledged it's pushing IE6 users to upgrade to the newer IE8,
but again promised it would support the creaky browser until April 2014.

The anti-IE6 move followed reports last month that Google's YouTube was
doing the same, that Digg would soon curtail support for the ancient browser
and a petition on Twitter collected nearly 10,000 signatures supporting the
effort. Facebook has been prompting IE6 users to swap out their browsers
since February 2009.

"Developers can't wait until IE6 is gone," said David Rusenko, the CEO of
Weebly, the San Francisco Web site creation and hosting company that's
leading the newest campaign. Weebly has more then 2.2 million users, said
Rusenko, and used connections with the venture capitalists who funded the
firm to reach out to the 38 sites that have joined its campaign.
