Since we are on Microsoft news today, Microsoft has announced that they will end support for Internet Explorer for Mac on December 31st, 2005, and additionally, as of January 31st, 2006, will no longer make Internet Explorer for the Mac available for download at Mactopia.
A thorn in the side of web designers and programmers for years, Microsoft’s announcement comes as a virtual gift to the web community and should have web professionals jumping for joy. Most all would agree that Internet Explorer for Mac was easily the buggiest and worst web browser ever devised for any platform. Microsoft recommends that Mac users migrate to more recent web browsing technologies such as Apple’s Safari.
Ding Dong! The wicked browser is dead! So long, Mac IE. We won’t miss you one bit. 😉
