Microsoft Sends Flowers to IE6 Funeral

Yesterday a web design group held a funeral for Internet Explorer 6, the out of date browser that just won't die. A lot of people were entertained by the idea and it looks like even Microsoft got into the spirit of things; a bouquet of flowers was sent to the party and signed by the team at Microsoft.

Last night the IE6 funeral Twitter-feed displayed the message, "Thanks for the flowers, Microsoft!" Included was a link to a photo of a bunch of flowers and a card with impossibly messy handwriting. From what we can tell it says:

"Thanks for the good times, IE6. See you all @ MIX, where we'll show a little piece of IE heaven. Internet Explorer Team at Microsoft"

 The funeral wasn't without its share of naysayers, though. Also present were a group of protesters who set up camp outside with placards that read, "IE6 4LIFE! RETURN TO FAMILY VALUES!" and "FIREFOX = The DEVIL'S WORK! IE6 4EVR!!"

    Malware writers should start a collection for a monument somewhere.

    Wow...seriously, who does this stuff...

    My roommate went to a Windows 7 unveiling party and I thought that was ridiculous. I don't even think there was free food. WTF is going on with people.
