Internet Explorer vs Humanity

Strong words from @secoif:
The thing that separates humans from the rest of the animal kingdom is our incredible ability to communicate.
Internet Explorer could easily be the single biggest hinderance to human advancement ever, in the history of humanity.
Every time you pander to Internet Explorer users you are holding all of humanity back.
With great power comes great responsibility, and you blew it Microsoft. You shit all over the human race and we should never forgive you for this.

Good Riddance to IE6 in the US (Almost!)

Microsoft blogged about their a big celebration when IE6 usage is below 1% in the US.

Turns out a celebration wasn't enough, so they made a t-shirt too!

Now for the laggard countries that are sucking on Microsoft's teat to move along too. Yes, even you South Korea, the country with the most advanced broadband.

Microsoft's Nefarious Scheme to Kill IE6

We couldn't be more pleased to find out that an evil scheme is in place and ready to roll, to lob off the heads of IE6 on many Windows machines. Unless of course, your IT department wants to keep you in the jurassic age of browsers or you've opted to deny IE upgrades in the past, thus ensuring that you yourself are stuck in ancient times.

Does this mean that developers like us will finally be able to finally make websites in half the time without having to wrangle with IE6? We sure hope so.

Finally, IE's Market Share is Below 50%

That took a long time, but the day is finally here. This should accelerate even further as IE development remains in catch-up mode, as Microsoft tends to it's backwards-compatibility and corporate market tendencies.
