InfoWorld writes that Microsoft is telling businesses how to avoid a mandatory Windows update that will install Internet Explorer 7 in place of Internet Explorer 6. If you’re not familiar with IE6, all you need to know is that it’s hated by pretty much every single web developer. IE6 has all sorts of odd behavior, because Microsoft decided they were too important to follow web standards. As a result, most web developers need to spend time catering to IE6 bullshit, which usually tends to be tedious and annoying.
Keep your fingers crossed, and maybe we’ll actually see the end of a terrible, terrible product.
