Submission + - Microsoft Kills IE6 (windowsteamblog.com)

pimpsoftcom writes: "Microsoft has finally decided to kill off Internet Explorer 6. In a windows team blog post on the official microsoft owned windows team blog site, they recently posted that they will now be doing silent upgrades of IE world wide "real soon now".

While the option was given to allow IE7 and IE8 to linger if corporate policy required it, no such option was given for IE6.

Could this finally be the end of everybody's favorite browser to hate?

As a web developer, I can't help but hope so."
