Re: Internet Explorer: 10 Reasons You'll Miss It
@freespiritny- I thought about a halo, but the "E" has been wearing it long before it died. I just kept thinking eventually, even with IE speeds, the thing would come back around to the other side again. :)

The faster you Chrome works, the more work you have to do- so true. Too bad Dora can't help me get online, that would be entertaining. Is the yellow orb an angels halo for the deceased IE?

But it had a great implementation of the blink tag!

I'm reminded of Nixon's parting shot at the media:

"You won't have Nixon to kick around anymore because, gentlemen, this is my last press conference"

Poking fun-Really?
I recall a Dilbert cartoon that said "I admire your ability to get paid for doing this"  or words to that effect.

 

I am cynical.  How can I get paid to write cynical jabs at?

Goodbye
I'm really hoping that the death of Internet Explorer means a lot of people still languishing on old, buggy, malware infected versions will move over to the new one, whatever it ends up being called. 

While I think that's a bit of a pipedream, if I never have to uninstall another infected toolbar from a relative's machine it will be too soon.

Early Explorer was a giant on the Web but didn't follow Web standards
Developers following Web standards will miss it because for a long time, Internet Explorer did not. That eventually got straightened out but through version 6, Explorer did  things the Microosft way because it could, I guess. So what looked good in Firefox and Chrome would end up jumbled in Explorer. And those early versions never saw a line of JavaScript they didn't like. The script kiddies had a field day with faux field insertions.

Re: Missing IE
I wouldn't miss IE, and that is the end of the story. However I do feel sad that newer generations won't be able to understand the magic of moving green bars (the loading screen) on older IEs. The loading circle gives me no thrills at all. During the time of dial up connection. IE was the rage.

Ha! I think 5 and 8 go hand in hand. 9 also made me chuckle. Fare thee well, IE
