Microsoft Sends Flowers to IE6 Funeral
Who said the Redmond fellas didn’t have a sense of humor?
Although it’s their very own baby, Microsoft apparently knows when to quit, so they “participated” in the funeral service performed for Internet Explorer 6. Microsoft has sent flowers and wrote a card, saying “Thanks for the good times IE6,” the card reads. “See you all @ MIX when we show a little piece of IE Heaven.”
Unfortunately, IE6 isn’t really dead yet. Some 12% of internet users are still utilizing this old and broken browser. Web developers all over the world just yearn the day when no one uses this browser. Hopefully, we’ll soon see the day when all browsers are standards-compatible.
