A Eulogy for Internet Explorer

Goodnight sweet prince, and flights of users sing thee to thy rest.

Microsoft marketing chief Chris Caposella announced yesterday that the company would be getting rid of Internet Explorer. Those grieving the demise of the browser include your dad, who still has an AOL email address. For the rest of us, who’ve moved on to Chrome or Firefox, we fondly remember last using the browser to log into MySpace or surreptitiously watch porn on the family computer. Caposella hinted at a new browser that would launch in Windows 10, currently code named Project Spartan. Explorer will be joining its long-deceased spouse, Minesweeper, in Microsoft heaven.
