It’s official, microsoft will not be making any more versions of internet explorer for mac. But as an OSX user myself I couldn’t care less. Good riddance I say! Safari has taken IEs place as my default browser ever since it’s first public beta release, and I’ve never looked back! It’s faster, lighter, manages my bookmarks beautifully and of course offers tabbed browsing, all in a sleek brushed metal interface like iTunes and Quicktime. Mind you the overall interface design for IE was nice. It was all aquafied and you could change the colour of the icons to match your mac, (unless of course your mac’s beige).
The only reason for me to keep IE on my machine now is for testing!
This move by microsoft will however not be terribly welcome by OS9.2 and below users though I’m sure. For those on OS9.2 and below, I suggest checking out the fine free browsers on offer from mozilla as a way of quietly sticking it to Microsoft.
