I am considering blocking all users who use Internet Explorer 6 from viewing this website (support will remain for Born Geek). Viewers using this old browser would instead be given a dialog offering links to other, more competent browsers (including IE 7 and 8). Is there anyone who regularly visits this website that still uses IE 6 and doesn’t want me to block them? I see that IE 6 still accounts for 13.5% of traffic to this site, which is surprising to me. Interestingly enough, Firefox only accounts for 37.7% of the visitors here.
If you’re an IE 6 user, and you want to continue viewing this site in your antiquated browser, let me know in the comments. If I don’t hear from anyone in the next two weeks, I’m gonna drop the ban hammer and start rejecting visitors who use it.
