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.

Member since:

I've run into people running IE5/Windows 2000. Am I expected to develop for them too because they're not upgrade-happy technogeeks?

And it's not just CSS. If you think it's just CSS hacks that need to be applied you're a laughably inexperienced web developer.

IE6 was released in August of 2001. That's nine years ago, an eternity by any measure. It's time to move on.

Most of the hacks ARE CSS-related. All the JavaScript related "hacks" are either to supplement IE's CSS support (example: Dean Edward's ie7-js) or simply for making AJAX (a useless technology) easier (like jQuery).
