An End to Explorer 6

Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 6 is garbage. I know. I used it for a great number of years and now it continues to curse me in my current profession as a web developer. It is, for all purposes, broken. There is no fixing it. There are just doing little things in websites so that people who visit using IE6 don’t see the thing completely blow up.
So, it’s with this that I started up something of a hobby project called, End 6!. It’s pretty simple. There’s a little chunk of JavaScript that someone can put on their site that triggers a window which gets in the user’s face about the fact that they’re using a browser that is bad. Then there is the hope that they’ll click on one of the links provided to upgrade their browser and make the internet a more friendly place.
This may sound like it’s just something that I’m doing to make my life easier and that is part of it. But, I generally get paid by the hour, so why should I care if a job takes an hour longer to do because I have to fix IE6 bugs? Well, because it’s just stupid waste. But, more importantly there is the fact that people using IE6 open up their computer to any number of vulnerabilities since Microsoft is not really putting the effort in to patching IE6, seeing as how it is obsolete.
What’s the solution? Besides running the End 6! code on a site of your own, upgrade to Explorer 7, Firefox, or Opera and stop being one of the 35-50% of users on this broken system.
