Funeral for IE6

A web design group in Denver, Colorado, hosted a funeral for Internet Explorer 6 on March 4, 2010. The death of the browser on March 1st was brought about as a “result of a workplace injury sustained at the headquarters of Google, Inc;” they ended support of IE6 for Google Docs and Google Sites; soon after, YouTube joined this group.

The announcement of the funeral resulted in over 1,000 RSVPs and a page of remembrances. Microsoft sent flowers.

FYI – It looks to me like Microsoft will support IE6 through 2013, when they stop supporting Windows XP SP3. I’d be glad to be proven wrong on this.
