A statistic that I never knew

According to http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2009/oct/28/upgrading-internet-explorer-6 , Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) is the most popular web browser globally right now (if you want to know exactly how this conclusion was reached, you can follow a link within Jack Schofield’s Guardian piece to the Net Applications site where the methodology is explained).  Admittedly this is a slight anomaly, since the number of users of  IE7 is declining rapidly as people upgrade to IE8, whereas use of IE6 is declining much more slowlybecause anybody still on IE6 will have particular reasons not to upgrade.  Significantly, quite a few Cass staff computers are still on IE6, not because of anything to do with internal resources, but because of compatibility issues with Datastream, which is an important resource for finance researchers in particular.

    The worst thing about IE6 is that you can’t add new tabs. I can’t believe people still using it.
