YouTube will kill Internet Explorer 6 support on March 13

In January, Neowin reported that Google would begin dropping support for IE 6.  Today, more evidence of that move has been made apparent as YouTube will no longer support IE 6 after March 13th. 

Ars Technica, whose readers must still use IE 6, has taken a screen shot showing the warning as posted on YouTube that clearly shows that they will be dropping support for IE 6.  The move is a big step forward towards the removal of support for IE 6 as the outdated browser has been a thorn in the side of many developers.

While it is important for major companies to move away from coding for IE 6, the biggest hurdle will be getting the corporate world to adopt a modern browser.  Until then, the browser will unfortunately survive in the internet ecosystem.
