Dead browser walking: Microsoft launches official IE6 extinction coutdown

Web developers and savvy computer users aren't the only people waiting for Internet Explorer 6 to curl up and die -- Microsoft is getting antsy, too. To help keep tabs on the aging browser's impending demise, the company has launched IE6 Countdown -- a global map which shows curent IE6 install levels.

Forward-thinking, progressive Scandinavia leads the way, with all its nations reporting less than 2% share for IE6. China and South Korea laughs at your pleas, reporting an amazingly high 34.5% and 24.6%, respectively.

The site even suggests some ways you can help accelerate the process -- such as helping your friends update and plastering banners on your own website. We're holding out for the "Uncle Steve wants YOU to upgrade!" posters.
