Why am I viewing this website?
You arrived here because your web browser (the software you use to browse the internet) is Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, and also because the website you were visiting is most likely to have been designed to be viewed with a more modern, powerful and secure browser. Since your current browser is outdated, the website designer is eager to propose several free and legal alternatives to Internet Explorer 6.
Why should I change my web browser?
Internet Explorer 6 was first launched in 2001. Today, this browser is nearly 8 years old, which is an incredibly old age in the world of computing. Since 2001, the internet has evolved dramatically; your current browser is no longer capable of providing you with an optimal, successfull internet experience, mainly because:
It is not secure anymore
Since it was replaced by ealier versions or itself, Internet Explorer 6 has not been updated by Microsoft for ages. It is clearly obsolete, represents a definitive risk of compromising your computer's security, and in addition is subject to an ever-increasing number of vulnerabilities that will never be fixed.
It does not respect standards anymore
Internet websites are developped in respect of specific standards and guidelines, which guarantee to you, the visitor, that their look and feel and their functionnalities will stay exactly the same — no matter what computer you are visiting the site from. Internet Explorer 6 does not respect most of these standards, which means that in most of the cases it will deliver a degraded user experience to the visitor.
It may potentially slow down the development of the internet
Developers and designers who create powerful, modern and interactive websites, must spend up to 50% of their time to adapt these websites so they can work with Internet Explorer 6. This represents a waste of time, energy and money.
