Subject RE: [users@httpd] Internet Explorer 6

Your user base will probably best determine what browser is most commonly used and in what
percent's (poll your logs if possible)  but here's some general numbers I found:

Microsoft Internet Explorer
Roughly 62% use IE-based browsers, with the percentage dropping slowly as users switch to
alternate browsers. About 26% use IE8, 14% IE7, and 21% IE6, with the IE6 and IE7 percentages
dropping as users upgrade to IE8 or switch to alternate browsers: IE7 users are more willing
to update than IE6 users. Some still use IE5, with the number shrinking slowly as users upgrade
or switch, and with the numbers likely to shrink more quickly in mid-2010 when support for
IE5 ends. Browsers older than IE5 may generally be considered extinct.

Subject: [users@httpd] Internet Explorer 6

Does anyone have any statistics as to how many people still use Internet Explorer 6?  We are
trying to decide whether we can stop supporting it.
Thanks for any information
