And the slaughter continues: YouTube officially ending IE 6 support March 13th.

If you’re still using IE 6 on your own terms, turn of the computer now. For the rest of you being forced by “the man”, you have my sympathies. IE 6 is the poster child for living well past your prime. Thankfully YouTube and Google are coming around and realizing that at some point, the madness has to stop. For IE 6 related madness, March 13th is the end of all days according to a fairly invasive new banner/page that is displayed when visiting the video hub on said browser.

Ok, maybe not “end of all” days as you’ll still be able to go to YouTube via IE 6 and fill your eye balls with all kinds of motion picture goodness. “End of most days” seems more appropriate.

Any visits after March 13th made on IE 6 will still result in a rather normal video watching experience. It’s just that any new and spiffy features that get added after the fact probably won’t work on IE 6. It’s just too…well, old.

It’s ok though. While you move on to a new favorite browser, IE 6 will live on within the locked confines of stubborn/stagnant/lazy corporations and dark, dingy basements of technologically incompetent people alike. Anyone want to admit they’re still using IE 6…for any reason?
