Internet Explorer Mac – the final days

Well, it’s finally becoming official- the Macintosh version of Microsoft Internet Explorer is about to take it’s farewell lap and be retired at long last. As announced back in mid-2004, official support for Mac/IE will end this New Years’ Eve (12/31/05), and the downloads will be removed from Microsoft’s Mactopia site a month later, on January 31st, 2006. The recommendation from Microsoft to current Mac IE users is to migrate to either the convenient built-in Apple web browser, Safari, or the developers’ darling Firefox (as you can probably guess, I lean toward the latter).
