Moksha from Internet Explorer 6

It would be wonderful if the Epic Browser could liberate majority of home users in India who are stuck with Internet Explorer 6. There is a campaign going around the world to kill Internet Explorer 6 but majority of Indians are unaware of it. At least a desi browser (through nationalistic or patriotic feeling) should give many an encouragement to come out of IE 6.

Perhaps this news might prompt them to explore other browsers or at least they will come to know that there is a world outside Internet Explorer 6.

Even today more than 50% of the people that visits our website from India use Internet Explorer 6 browser, which does not support many of the modern browsing facilities. The net result is that quite often we are forced to not to use many new features, that would enrich our website, as it is not supported by IE 6.
