Had I used real titles in my blog, I'd call this post "The IE Chronicle: A Tribute to Internet Explorer6" ;))
You know how much I hate IE, right? Just have a look here and here. So when I first read this, I was ready to spread the news to the world. And looks like not only mashable pick it up. Other tech website, even freakonomics (and I'm too lazy to look them all up).
And it's a hoax :)) Even, come to think of it, not a really good one at that. The "method" looks questionable, the graphs scream 'Microsoft Excel for Beginner'.
So, for once, cheers to Internet Explorer(6)! :))
