Oh that’s easy. It’s because it likely came with their Windoze XP system. I know IE6 is still on my parents’ 8 year old Windows XP desktop.

But that’s still no excuse to stay there. Silly stupid people.

A great mystery, indeed.

Where I work they still have IE5! I cry every time someone someone checks web based email.

We still use it at work, because the installer for a bit of Cisco software relies on it. Upgrade to 7 and it just fails with a really unhelpful error, so personally I’m blaming Cisco for everything.

Another great mystery, why do people actually use IE… FireFox FTW!

Thanks for a great cartoon!

Everyone knows that nothing changes unless there is a cartoon.

I get my truth from the cartoons, and so should you. It’s the onlye trustworthy source of information and informed opinion.

Any more IE6-cartoons around somewhere?

@ Hugomanen: sounds plausible. Let’s face it, now C is getting married he’ll turn into a wuss.

Get Firefox Imo

The reason why people still use IE is because 70% of them dont know what IE is.

Some are probably still using pirated versions of Windows which will not allow you to upgrade to SP2. Others are corporate folks with web applications that rely on IE6 (like the one person above who has a Cisco system that requires it). And still others just don’t care or even know.

Maybe it’s also satan… ;-)
