Now we are at the over mid of the year, and In year 2010 following is the interesting data for end users.

Number of users for “Internet Explorer” are dramatically reducing.  Surprisingly there are 7.2% of people are still using IE6.

(IE 6 is very venerable and has high risk of getting attacked by latest Malwares and Browsers Hackers)

The following table is a breakdown of the Internet Explorer numbers from our Browsers Statistics:

This is really very good sign for “HTML Designers” and “Web Developers”. Industry is wasting time and revenue on fixing IE issues. It was a really “Nightmare” for the HTML Designers to fix layout in different different versions of Internet Explorer.

This year people are started using HTML 5 and CSS 3. There is very limited support for HTML 5 and CSS 3 in IE6… IE7 and IE8. The new version of IE i.e. IE9 has a HTML 5 / CSS 3 Support.

Though Google has been intimidating its users for long to stop using IE6, it finally declared to set its foot down, saying:

“In order to continue to improve our products and deliver more sophisticated features and performance, we are harnessing some of the latest improvements in web browser technology.  This includes faster JavaScript processing and new standards like HTML5.  As a result, over the course of 2010, we will be phasing out support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 as well as other older browsers that are not supported by their own manufacturers. Later in 2010, we will start to phase out support for these browsers for Google Mail and Google Calendar.”

So lets hope for best and by the end of the year we will really FREE from this IE Nightmare!
