IE6 No More?

The campaign asks sites to include code that detects IE6 visitors and encourages them to upgrade to Firefox, IE8, or Google Chrome. On Tuesday the movement composed of around a dozen sites, today that number exceeds 70 participants.

The sites jumping on board are by no means insignificant: they include established internet startups, consulting firms and (of course) design blogs. As the sites creator, David Rusenko,stated on Tuesday, that the aim is to target both personal users who are behind the times and put pressure on corporate IT departments. Ultimately the aim of this campaign is to try and push the outdated IE6 out for new, more compatible browsers.
