When it was first released Internet Explorer for Mac was a great web browser. It had excellent support for Cascading StyleSheets and all kinds of great features. Since then the web has changed, and moved forward, while IE has not. Now IE for Mac has reached the end of its life.
In June 2003, the Microsoft Macintosh Business Unit announced that Internet Explorer for Mac would undergo no further development, and support would cease in 2005. In accordance with published support lifecycle policies, Microsoft will end support for Internet Explorer for Mac on December 31st, 2005, and will provide no further security or performance updates.
Additionally, as of January 31st, 2006, Internet Explorer for the Mac will no longer be available for download from Mactopia. It is recommended that Macintosh users migrate to more recent web browsing technologies such as Apple’s Safari.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that suddenly no one will use it any longer, but already the number of users should be extremely small — it doesn’t even come on a new Mac any more.
If by some chance you are still using it for actually surfing the web (rather than just testing web pages), it really is time you tried out Safari, Firefox, Opera, Camino, OmniWeb, or even one of the others.
