A letter (to Internet Explorer 6) (ARCHIVE POST)

Dear Internet Explorer 6,

 

Please just fucking die already.  Nobody likes you.  The people who do can't see things clearly - mostly because you're not rendering them properly.  We've tried telling people that there are plenty of other fish in the sea, but they just can't seem to get over you.  We've tried to introduce them to a real Fox.  We've tried taking them to the Opera.  We tried to take them on Safari.  Hell, we tried distracting them with something shiny.  We've even tried to introduce them to your younger, much better looking cousins.  Yet they still won't let you go.

 

For the last eight years, experts have tried to make you look pretty.  Some have succeeded at times, while others have failed miserably.  You've become the bane of designers everywhere.  While some still try, others flat out refuse to work with you, while those who are just crazy enough have even tried to kill you.  Personally, I wish you'd just go away so that I wouldn't have to work harder to satisfy you and your flock.

 

On a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.  Hopefully we're seeing the end of yours soon.
