Microsoft lays IE6 to rest in the United States

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

Microsoft confirmed Tuesday that Internet Explorer 6′s share of the United States Web browser marker is now less than 1%. In celebration of the stat, first reported by Net Applications, the Redmond-based company is giving a final farewell to the browser. Internet Explorer 6 was first launched in 2001, shortly after Windows XP made its debut. It has since been replaced by new revisions, the most current of which is Internet Explorer 9. “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,” Microsoft’s director of Internet Explorer marketing Roger Capriotti said in a blog post. “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.” Internet Explorer 8 was recently surpassed by Google Chrome 15 as the most popular single browser version in the world according to StatCounter, but Internet Explorer still maintains the largest global share if all versions of the browser are taken into consideration.

TomTom Start wants to democratize GPS navigation: smartphones point, laugh

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

Paradoxically, most of the fuss surrounding TomTom of late has been associated with a certain smartphone — a class of devices that signals the end to the dedicated SatNavs TomTom builds. Still, TomTom hasn’t given up the fight yet as they’ve just announced the TomTom Start, a Є129 entry-level GPS navigator with 3.5-inch display and choice of six StartSkin covers costing €15 per — you know, so you can change the look of your GPS unit every time you reupholster your car’s interior. The device cost climbs to Є149 for a European map pre-load instead of the base, regional offering. Start features TomTom’s IQ Routes and Map Share technology to find the fastest route benefiting from the aggregated map correction data fed by the hoards of local TomTom-ers. Look for it in the UK and Ireland, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway… someday, TomTom doesn’t say when.
