In a way IE6 was pretty good and not as bloated as' his son Internet Explorer Seven, and grand-daughter Internet Explorer Eight'.
Indeed a great loss to all us retro cybernauts...
But I guess we're not to mourn yet.
A lotta companies apparently still use IE6 for their company's intranet..

my university has a lot of thin-clients using IE6 on the servers,
i have used it daily, actually last time was today !
although i discovered that sometimes after logging in i get IE7,
so i have invented a little trick, closing the browser so it disconnects from the server and then restarting it again,
then after several attempts i usually manage to get IE7...

"Thanks for the good times IE6," the card from the IE team reads. "See you all @ MIX when we show a little piece of IE Heaven."
