    RIP DIAF, Internet Explorer 6. It’s even painful to remember what it looked like. That funeral looks fun, though.
    By the way, those last two links need to be fixed.

    I didn’t even like IE6 when it was new. I think I used Netscape back then. LOL

    Thanks for the heads-up on the links. I have no idea how I did that; I fixed them. :)

    RIP IE you are dead for me for years, soon Firefox is going to join you because it has so many addons that he doesn’t move. The future so far is after Chrom and Safari.

    I remember eagerly waiting for this to download on my really crappy dial up connection.
    One day later when all was said and done I wished I had my day back.

    Whoever uses IE6 in this day and age probably has a typewriter next to the pc. You never know what might happen with these new machines.

    I thought I used the best browser, IE, until sometime in 2009 I heard that people were saying Firefox is the cat’s meow. I could never go back to that poor relation IE now, but those alternatives can’t be better than Firefox. Can anyone argue, that outside of too many addons, there is a superior browser? If so, really explain why, and I’ll thank you and take a look. The consensus is Firefox.

    I used to love Firefox, but it does crash quite often. Chrome seems much more reliable to me, even with add-ons.

    But does anyone else wonder if by using Chrome they are giving too much information to Google? I have to admit, it does cross my mind every so often…

    Great effort on the picture in the coffin. Firefox seem to be keeping its flame alive. Then there’s Chrome, but there is a particular article site that just doesn’t accept Chrome, making its use limited for me. Firefox it is so far.

    Yeah! I am also one of those who used IE6 previously, now I am using IE-8, so many new websites are not supported by IE-6, most popular community sites like Orkut and Facebook are also not supported in IE-6. we cant even watch Youtube videos in IE-6, and also no support of flash player-10. we can conclude IE-6 is no more from the above factors.

    I first discovered Firefox a couple months after it was released and honestly stick to that and Chrome unless I absolutely HAVE to use IE. There are some government sites out there that force IE still and that’s extremely lame. RIP IE. It will be back in zombie form I know it.

    I got rid of IE6 a long time ago and use Firefox now. It does crash sometimes though but I still prefer it to IE.

    You said it friend, internet explorer 6 is so dead, and so are dead the days of complicated browser functionalities, which used to keep us novices uwake at nights… chrome has changed and totally revolutionalised internet browsers… I’m using it right now and it rocks… The new IE is better, but a lot still needs to be done… great post, thanks!

    Oh yes – and now in december 2011 I still meet some clients who are working on IE6 (!) And even better. They demand that we will continue to update their CMS to IE6 – even though we have shown them that their clients are working on FF, Chrome og IE8/9. Great post – got a laugh!

    I don’t even like the last version of Internet Explorer. It’s still too slow, and I always receive different kind of warnings, which they bother me. I don’t like that the tabs (different pages) are positioned in front of the place where you write the URL; in Chrome or Firefox you have all the space you need to open these tabs.

    It is already dead! There are a lot of internet browsers in the market right now. So sad that they not updated, but I know someone that still he is using Internet Explorer 6. I would say that Internet Explorer 6 is dead in the market but not in the heart of the users.

  27. Of all the funerals I know, the death of Internet Explorer 6 is something that a lot of people will surely be happy about. Good riddance! Now let’s see what’s next in line!
