Conventional wisdom has it that Microsoft's Internet Explorer Web browser is on the way out: succumbing to the death of thousand cuts administered by plucky rivals like Mozilla's Firefox, Google's Chrome and even Opera. But data from Web security firm zScaler shows that the Old Blue Lady of the Web is still a force among enterprise users and that IE6, the notoriously security plagued version, is the browser of choice for one in five employees.

I go to a secure web site of a very large company that still uses I.E.6. I have always though it's lazy I.T. personal and uninformed management.

Yeah my school used IE 6 until last school year and that was only upgraded to IE 7, But I think that my school is/has upgraded to everything windows 7. So that should be quite interesting. :thumbsup:
