WordPress Pulls the Plug on IE6 Support

Tony Bradley Tony Bradley Profile: Tony Bradley

WordPress–the blogging platform relied on by millions around the world–is doing its part to support the demise of Internet Explorer 6. Microsoft, and Web developers everywhere have been trying to kill the archaic, yet tenacious browser for years.

The Web has moved on. IE6 is insecure, unstable, and unable to deliver the interactive Web content of today. Microsoft created an entire site to track the death of IE6. We are making progress, but 11.4 percent of the world is still using IE6.

Microsoft has already released IE9, and has moved on to developing IE10. There really isn’t any excuse to still be on IE6. Web browsers are free. If you don’t like IE8 or IE9, then get the latest release of Firefox, or Chrome, or something…anything but IE6.
