Is Internet Explorer 6 Dead? Is it time to move on?
Internet Explorer version 6 comes with every fresh installation of Windows XP, before you run updates. In fact, just to update XP all the way requires you to use IE6 to access the Internet.
The problem is this: you shouldn’t be using Internet Explorer 6 at all!
Here are the reasons why it’s really important to stop using IE6 and either update it to IE8 or switch to an alternative browser (wise, because IE9 isn’t available for XP)
Luckily, Microsoft has finally starting pushing through a required update that upgrades everyone out of Internet Explorer 6. If you’ve got updates turned on, eventually you’ll be asked to switch.
If you’re worried that your old PC can’t handle a modern browser as well as an older one, keep in mind that newer browsers fix a lot of memory leak issues and operate more efficiently than older browsers. So the difference in performance should be negligible.
The bottom line is, don’t keep using IE6. Pages won’t look right, it’s a security risk, and it’s no longer supported. Upgrade, and you’ll be glad you did!
