Internet Explorer Six, resident of the interwebs for over 8 years, died the morning of March 1, 2010 in Mountain View, California, as a result of a workplace injury sustained at the headquarters of Google, Inc. Internet Explorer Six, known to friends and family as "IE6," is survived by son Internet Explorer Seven, and grand-daughter Internet Explorer Eight.

Funeral services for Internet Explorer Six will be held at 7pm on March 4 at Aten Design Group, 1629 Downing Street, Denver, CO 80218. Those unable to attend the funeral are asked to send flowers.

Come mix & mingle with Denver’s top IE6 haters. We’ll have a special time of remembrance, a round of IE6 darts, and plenty of food & drinks.

Prizes will be awarded for the best IE6 memory & the best dressed!

IE6 is outdated and insecure. Thank goodness to Windows Vista, locked down IE8, and Firefox 3.5.8! :D :D :D

Oh, have there been a funeral for IE 3, 4, 5, and 5.5?
