Internet Explorer (IE) version 6 was released back in 2001. While IE 6 was adequate when it was first released, over the last 8 years the Internet has become a central target for viruses and exploits that IE 6 simply cannot combat. In response to these changes, Microsoft has since then released two full version upgrades of their IE Browser line, the latest version to the market being IE 8. In the coming months Microsoft will be ending all support for IE 6.

Microsoft’s Official End of Life (EOL) for IE 6 is dated July, 2010.

IE 7 and higher have introduced many needed web page formatting and security enhancements that improve user’s Internet experience and better protect users from web site based attacks more effectively.
