Matt Harzewski of Webmaster-Source asks if Internet Explorer 5 is dead, and does a nice little bullet list of things that have happened since 1998 (which is funny since IE5 launched in 1999, which he also notes).
9 years is serious time for a web browser. There is no excuse for IE5 to exist anymore.
Luckily, it just about doesn’t. On my Swedish sites I’ve got 0% IE5 visitors, and on the international ones it’s below 0.15%.
In other words, IE5 is dead. Now please kill IE6. Thank you.
