Video Daily: The Internet Explorer 6 'funeral' Earlier this week we reported on the "funeral" of Internet Explorer 6, hosted by Aten Design Group, a design firm in Colorado.
The service had a coffin with a dummy inside with an IE6 logo for its head. Anyone who attended was welcome to eulogize the browser with memories, good or bad.

Google
plans to pull all IE6 support from its Google family of sites, including Docs and Gmail starting next week, and YouTube fans will start to get hit with nagware popups when trying to access the site from IE6.

What a bunch of weiners! Let it go already! It's done, caput, ousted, that kind of thing. Tech moves fast and so does life.

It's a fun idea. Gets a bunch of nerds out for drinks. Maybe one of them might get laid.

If only one of them gets laid, that is called masturbation...and it is nothing out of the ordinary for them.
