Google BBC News reports: Google has begun to phase out support for Internet Explorer 6, the browser identified as the weak link in a "sophisticated and targeted" cyber attack on the search engine. The firm said from 1 March some of its services, such as Google Docs, would not work "properly" with the browser. It recommended individuals and firms upgrade "as soon as possible".

IE6 out, Silverlight in... Sigh...

I am happy to see IE6 die. I am a web developer and IE6 and its userbase is the reason I could never use the full potential of todays JavaScript, CSS and HTML.

Unfortunately thanks to everybody who buys WIN7 we'll be soon developing all for Silverlight within a couple of months; just because noone realizes that buying MS products is the same as turning back time (again...). I lost complete faith in humanity lately.
