Adieu, au revoir, ciao, and adios to IE6

We’re (finally) removing Internet Explorer 6 from BrowserLab. Fortunately, we don’t need to include it in the set of browsers any more due to its final decline of usage. We’ve all been waiting for this day.

I wish I could say that we’re removing IE6 exclusively due to its utter and complete lack of relevance. While that’s mostly true, the fact of the matter is that we have an issue with continuing to support IE6, that in combination with its decline of use, made it an easy decision to terminate it. And, I must admit, it feels pretty good to have the last word in this long, painful, protracted battle.

So, IE6, I say to you – You’re out of my life for good. Adieu, au revoir, ciao, adios, sayonara! Good riddance. I will not miss you.
