This is one of the most incredible “hidden history” stories I have ever read. Remaining IE6 holdouts were the floodgates holding back innumerable technologies. It was entrenched. A conspiracy to kill it by a small group of engineers changed the world.

My thread on how Chrome similarly was used as way to bludgeon the web and desktop ecosystem for the better.

Unfortunately, Mozilla Firefox absolutely deserves the same valorization for the changes it has fostered, and their activist use of their TLS ertificate store, but I haven’t written it. Complicating the fact is I was a teen during early years so I didn’t understand technical side

Shame IE11 is still a complete fucking shit show from the bottom up, and we have to support it for at least six more fucking years. And Edge 18, which is a special bullshit flake, which we'll have to support now, with all the shit they'll never fix like the garbage TLS 1.3

what's super funny though is that they're also not putting as much resources into ChakraCore BUT IT'S STILL GOING TO HAVE TO BE IN USE
