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.

I've had to support the latest Netscape 6 (latest came out in 2002).

Anyone out there supporting NCSA Mosaic?

2002, eh? That's more recent than IE6 (2001).

Ah, you took the bait.

Netscape 6 was released earlier in 2001, IE was first released later that year. The difference being IE was being updated until its last stable release in May 2008, but Netscape 6 stopped in May 2002.
