Surprised there hasn't been more cheers about this - a marvellous idea and having tested today, works well, even if the install process can be a bit... clunky.
It is amusing, would have been fit for an April 1st article...
I doubt it solves a problem. I don't see the point, actually, over just switching to Chrome.
People still using IE6, beside people like me using it to test Web sites they develop, are either non-technical people unable to download and install a new browser, so I don't see them installing a new plugin, or people not allowed to install a new browser (eg. at their work), so they are likely not allowed to install a plugin as well...
It does look to be a "well, we're doing all we can to stop IE6 being a problem" from Google to Microsoft.
Now all that software big corporations bought at the turn of the century that only works with IE6 just needs to be upgraded, and the world will be a better place ;)
