IE6 Funeral

A group is putting together a funeral for IE6 given a recent announcement from Google stating they were pulling support for the browser from their applications.

Internet Explorer Six, resident of the interwebs for over 8 years, died the morning of March 1, 2010 in Mountain View, California, as a result of a workplace injury sustained at the headquarters of Google, Inc. Internet Explorer Six, known to friends and family as “IE6,” is survived by son Internet Explorer Seven, and grand-daughter Internet Explorer Eight.

On Thursday, March 4, 2010, at 7:00 p.m., we’ll gather with fellow IE6 friends and loved ones at Forest Room 5, 2532 15th Street, Denver, CO 80211-3902 to pay our respects.

Those unable to attend the funeral are asked to send flowers.
