Internet Explorer Let's continue the browser talk for a while. Let's move from the pinnacle of browsing, all the way down to the very drainage pit: Internet Explorer 6. To me, Internet Explorer 6 is that annoying zombie that just won't die that chops off 80 of your health in a grueling midnight Left 4 Dead expert session. Microsoft may not say so outright, but they seem to be implying they agree with me.

They are having to resort to using Silverlight to patch up the browser holes in Office:Web 2010. I pity the development team--no SVG, no Canvas, no Video/Audio tags, wonky JS/DOM, lack of even basic CSS. It must be hell.

Dont pity those guys they at least can whack the guy next office who did the bug.
Pity the myriads of developers outside of Microsoft who are forced to still support IE6 because their customers demand it.

If you still use IE6 because of your intranet, you should get your intranet updated, because you'll be paying for IE6 anyway. Because when you want an other intranet-type site and still require IE6, you'll be paying extra to have it be fixed and butchered to work with IE6.

I doubt that, because a lot of those people possible have already left Microsoft.
