Microsoft Dev Team Sends Flowers To IE6’s Funeral

The funeral for Internet Explorer 6, one of the older members of the Microsoft family, was a pleasant affair with only a few protesters. Unfortunately, representatives of the family were unable to attend and sent flowers and a note instead:

Thanks for the good times, IE6. See you all @ MIX, where we’ll show a little piece of IE heaven.

IE6’s funeral arrangements – right down to the photographer – were made by design company Aten Design Group. They actually made it into a rather decent looking event:

Rest in peace, IE6. Even if we were enemies half the time. [Flickr via TechCrunch]
