10 years ago a browser was born

Traffic logs reveal that the overwhelming majority of visitors to zerosleeps.com use a decent browser. But for the tiny percentage of you who are still using Internet Explorer 6, please do something about it. You are the bane of my professional life.

Microsoft have recycled a domain they purchased more than 10 years ago, and are using it to request IE6 users upgrade their browser. Microsoft themselves have created this website, and thereby admitted that IE6 needs to be killed immediately.

I recommend any WebKit browser in case you’re interested. Google Chrome is excellent, and Apple’s Safari isn’t too shabby either. And in the non-webkit world, initial tests we’ve conduced at work on Internet Explorer 9 are very pleasing.
