MacIE's numbered days

MSFT is officially pulling the plug IE5 for the Mac:

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.

So long, old buddy.

BONUS: best comment via Slashdot: "Couldn't they have just emailed both people still using IE on the Mac and saved themselves the trouble of a whole press release."

Update regarding IE 7:

As I understand it there won't be any version of the new Internet Explorer 7 available for the Mac, much less for other platforms other than XP with SP2.

Greetings, Peter
