Internet Explorer 6 never worked the way a browser should work. As a result the pages you visit with this browser don't necessarily display properly. Web designers and developers have bent over backwards for years to accommodate this unfortunate circumstance but now they are starting to leave Internet Explorer 6 and its users behind. So if you don't upgrade your browser now, chances are more and more of the world wide web will either become harder to surf or inaccessible to you.
Internet Explorer 6 is full of security issues, holes and other bugs that put your computer, your data and your privacy at risk. There are many reasons for this but right now the main one is that Microsoft themselves stopped developing Internet Explorer 6 in 2006 (so close to 3 years ago) and replaced with a new version of the browser. In effect, if you are surfing the internet with this old browser you are exposing yourself and your data to all sorts of nasty tomfoolery for no reason.
Internet Explorer 6 is old and outdated. And just like it would make no sense to hold on to an old black and white TV if someone offered you a shiny new High Definition flat screen TV for free, holding on to Internet Explorer 6 is just plain silly because the upgrade is free directly from Microsoft. In the end it is just a piece of software, it has no sentimental value and the new one is both safer, easier to use and give you a whole host of new features you never had before. And as a bonus the web sites you visit will act the way they are supposed to.
Bottom line? If you are still stuck in the browser dark ages, take a few minutes and upgrade now.
