Yup, the world would be a better place without certain things — IE6 is definitely in the top ten of my list, right after war, religion (which maybe counts as one), cigarettes, and girls who like horses. Please support the most important campaign after “yes we can” (note the Shepard-Fairy-ness of the graphics — don’t ask me why they did such a poor job copying him), initiated by .net magazine.  Blog it, link to it, donwload the wordpress warning plug-in for your blog… help to spread the word and let’s finally Bring Down IE6.

Here’s an excerpt from the site:

The premise is simple: Internet Explorer 6 is antiquated, doesn’t support key web standards, and should be phased out. This isn’t about being anti-Microsoft, it’s about Microsoft’s lack of development in the browser market. With IE7/8 not available for Windows 2000, IE6 accounts for up to 20% of web usage, primarily via business users. Clients pressure designers to ‘force’ sites to work in IE6, and designers, not wanting to lose business, comply, using hacks and workarounds. This wastes time and money. Microsoft needs to fix this, designers need to unite, and we all need to move on.
