Time to move on from IE6 – really.

As of January 29, 2010, Google announced it will begin phasing out support for Internet Explorer 6 web browser. Beginning March 1, 2010, Google's Web based applications and services will stop working well with Internet Explorer 6.[29][30][dated info] YouTube announced that it will no longer support IE6 beginning on March 13, 2010. Many major websites are now trying to discourage use of the web browser, thus far without success.[31]

On August 25, 2010, Facebook announced that it will be dropping support for Internet Explorer 6 as part of their plans to improve chat on the site.[32]

Unlike most other browsers currently in use, IE6 does not fully nor properly support CSS version 2, which makes it difficult for web developers to ensure compatibility with the browser without degrading the experience for users of more modern browsers. Developers often have to resort to strategies such as CSS hacks, conditional comments, or other forms of browser sniffing to make their websites work in IE6.  As a developer, I will no longer be developing for IE6 or supporting IE6 coding.  It's time to move forward.  Newer browsers are FREE. 

Additionally, IE6 lacks support for alpha transparency in PNG images, instead removing all transparency and displaying the image with a solid colour background (grey unless defined in a PNG bKGD chunk). There is a workaround by way of Microsoft's proprietary AlphaImageLoader, but it is more complicated to use and not wholly comparable in function.[34]

Internet Explorer 6 has also been criticized due to its instability.

In May 2006, PC World rated Internet Explorer 6 the eighth worst tech product of all time.[

And for you AOL folks, what version are you running?  Most AOL browses are IE6 with an AOL layer over them.  Please upgrade your AOL browser: http://wspart.websys.aol.com/ie7custom/  or just stop using it and use the more accepted and current browsers.
