Weebly has dedicated a web site to the eradication of Microsoft Internet Explorer 6. The strategy of “IE6NoMore.com” is to sign on support by other prominent web sites for the inclusion of a snippet of code that alerts IE6 users specifically to the fact that they're using an outmoded web browser. "We've heard from several sources that many corporate IT departments don't feel any need or urgency to upgrade, and receive very few complaints," the Weebly site reads. "We see this as a start -- the more complaints the IT department gets (especially from the top), the more pressure they'll feel to upgrade. Even if they can't upgrade IE6 due to legacy applications, they could always install a version of Firefox side-by-side and only use IE6 for the legacy apps."
