Time for IE 6 To Go

A group in Norway has launched a public campaign to end the use of IE 6, claiming the browser has never met a standard it actually liked and makes it hard for developers to build compatible sites.

You'd think Microsoft would be upset that an outside group is trying to kill its product -- but Microsoft has been trying to kill IE 6 for years! Microsoft always tries to knock off an older product way before customers are ready. Don't believe it? Then just say these two letters: XP.
