  • Computer Chat Rest In Peace, IE6

    Apparently someone has suffered long enough to take it upon himself to murder Internet Explorer 6:

    Cool grave, I admit.

    Why doesn't he just use IE7 or 8 instead of complaining about 6?

          Many, many companies are tied to IE6 through various applications. They are slowly getting these apps updated to newer IE versions. My own company is stuck with IE6, until other business apps are updated.

          (I've got FF installed covertly on my work machine, but I have to use IE6 to access all of our web based business apps.)
          To be updated...

            He says the campaign is not about people familiar of IE6's drawbacks (i.e. designers, developers, etc.):
            RIPIE6 is not another nail in the coffin of Internet Explorer 6. It is not a new campaign for killing IE6, because It's already dead. RIPIE6 is not intended for web developers and it's certainly not a cure for Internet Explorer 6.

                In case someone haven't noticed, clicking on the grave image opens an obituary of IE6 in PDF format.
