Internet Explorer For Mac Killed Off

Although development of Internet Explorer for Mac was halted back in 2003 at version 5 Microsoft has just announced that support will be stopped on 31st December 2005.

Futhermore downloading of Internet Explorer for Mac will halted from 31st January 2006. Interestingly Microsoft suggests that Mac users migrate to a more recent browsing technology such as Apple Safari, they make no mention of Firefox.

One hopes that by relinquishing some control over the web platform, albeit a very small part of it, Microsoft might make IE 7 more standards compliant than IE 6, web developers everywhere pray for that.
