A design group in Denver thought it was finally time to put Internet Explorer 6 to rest, holding a mock funeral for the outdated Microsoft browser last night. It was 8 years old.
Apparently, IE6 died from "a workplace injury sustained at the headquarters of Google, Inc." (Sounds like a hit job to me...) Event organizers suggested "funeral" attire, but added that there would also be a tapas bar. That seems more like it for a tech event.
Microsoft showed they have a sense of humor too, as they sent some flowers in remembrance for the deceased.
I don't even know the last time I used IE 6...or even Internet Explorer at all, for that matter. R.I.P. IE6.
