Microsoft Does Its Best To Kill off IE 6

Microsoft really, really, really doesn't want you to use Internet Explorer 6 anymore.

Standing in the way of that happening is the fact that lots of applications both internal and external at organizations run only on IE 6. We have a suggestion, though: Just kill IE altogether.
