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.

It's About Time, Microsoft

Microsoft posted a rare tweet today, asking mortals not to use their software:

This tweet links to The Internet Explorer 6 Countdown site, where Microsoft is doing a great service by tracking worldwide usage of IE6. The world's foremost culprits: China and South Korea.

Now to wait for Microsoft to do the same for IE7, IE8 and (gasp!) IE9. :P
