Internet Explorer 6 is the plague of the Internet. Sure there are other battles, like net neutrality or censorship, but I think it's safe to say that IE6 has held back innovation more than anything else, because of its slow JavaScript engine, incorrect rendering of web pages, bad security, and more. At the time of this writing, Net Applications says 18% of Internet users still use Internet Explorer 6. Even worse, many sites have a much higher percentage of Internet Explorer 6 visitors.
