U.S. IE6 Usage Drops Below 1 pct [windowsteamblog.com]
Time to pop open the champagne because, based on the latest data from Net Applications, IE6 usage in the US has now officially dropped below 1%!

IE6 has been the punch line of browser jokes for a while, and we’ve been as eager as anyone to see it go away. In fact, we launched the IE6 Countdown site last March to help accelerate the process. Less than a year later, I’m thrilled to say that the United States has joined the ranks of Austria, Poland, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway in dropping below 1% usage of IE6. In addition, the Czech Republic, Mexico, Ukraine, Portugal and the Philippines are also entering the Champions’ Circle. We hope this means more developers and IT Pros can consider IE6 a “low-priority” at this point and stop spending their time having to support such an outdated browser.

Only visitors we see using IE6 are bots with out of date useragents

Still accounts for 1.6% of visits over the last fortnight on mine. I now get more hits from mobile phones.
Safari has pushed Firefox into third place at 19.2 and 18.8% respectively
