LinkThe man in charge of Internet Explorer has told PC Pro that he's been tasked with destroying IE6.
Internet Explorer 6 continues to be the second most used browser version in the world at the ripe old age of nine, according to Net Applications. IE6's position as the default browser in Windows XP means many companies still cling to the browser. The continued use of old hardware in developing nations and consumer inertia have also contributed to IE6's longevity.
"Part of my job is to get IE6 share down to zero as soon as possible," said Ryan Gavin, head of the Internet Explorer business group.
