On a rather surprising but quite welcomed move by some high profile Norwegian websites
, they have launched an advocacy campaign asking IE6 users to upgrade to the latest stable IE release
or switch to other alternative browsers
that are not as outdated.
Since I don't speak Norwegian and neither do I know many sites written in that language I will have to take Wired's word for it. That said, many other sites from Sweden, Germany, Indonesia and Australia seem to have adhered to the movement, and hereby TechSpot joins it, too.
If you don't have a site or blog yourself but still have suffered the pain from using or developing for IE6, you can join this Facebook group
or collaborate in the Wiki
dedicated to it. Even Microsoft regional offices seem to agree
this is the correct way to go nowadays.
