Today I fired up Internet Explorer 6 on XP to test how it renders one of my sites. Before even getting that far I discovered that Microsoft has suicidal tendencies – a fact clearly evident by the following issues:
Issue 1: The homepage of IE6 defaulted to nineMSN, a Microsoft site that promptly causes Microsoft’s own ancient browser to crash.
Issue 2: The Download Center on microsoft.com (you know, where you go to upgrade the browser) isn’t compatible with IE6.
If even Microsoft doesn’t care about IE6, why should I?
