Humor BBC News reports "Mark your diaries for 4 March because in Denver the funeral arrangements are well underway for the planned passing that day of Internet Explorer 6". There's a phobia of being buried alive but I think in this case, it's the living that are all too quick to be shoveling the dirt over as IE6 doesn't officially die until 2014 when Microsoft pull the life-support.

The people celebrating are us web developers, for the reasons I outlined above.


It depends where you consider web development to reside - in the client, on the server or in the integration of your server onto a heterogeneous network containing a wide diversity of systems. Actually I consider myself a web developer too.

Being able to say "This site works in any browser" gets WAY easier and cleaner when that phrase does not include IE6.


That is truly ironic.
