Hi all,

Ref "Links for light reading" article: 

Which basically states IEv6 has dropped below the 5% threshold across USA and 

I just took a peek at our own stats for May 2010.
A very large set limited to UK online shoppers only.
And I couldn't agree less with the article.

Our figures are from such a large representation they cannot be readily ignored.
While I cannot print the actual numbers, the browser percentages should be fine.
I thought they may be of use to others working in the UK and of general use 

Internet explorer only:
IEv8: 48.26%
IEv7: 37.14%
IEv6: 14.58%
Other: 0.02%

In general:
IE: 66.12%
Firefox: 16.25%
Safari: 8.06%
Chrome: 6.89%
Others: 2.67%

So IEv6 is still at 9.64% overall. Virtually double that stated by the article.
Sorry for the bad news but IEv6 is still too relevant to ignore.
And by the way who actually said 5% is the "ignorable" threshold?
I'd of thought more like 2-3% personally.
