In its campaign to ask users to [upgrade to Internet Explorer 8](http://www.microsoft.com/australia/technet/ie8milk/Default.aspx), Microsoft is calling Internet Explorer 6 an 9-year-old milk.

Internet Explorer 6 has not been popular among web developers due to its many non-compliances to the open web. Google is one of the major vendors that ceased support for IE6 for its Google Docs site in January. And this week, Google Reader axes support for IE6.

If you still have some Windows XP machines lurking around, its time to check the IE version and do the necessary upgrade.
