12 Days of Mac Internet Explorer Support Left

12 Days of Mac Internet Explorer Support Left

by , 10:25 AM EST, December 19th, 2005

Interent Explorer fans, it's time to move on: Microsoft's Web site lists December 31, 2005 as the last day of support for the Mac version of Internet Explorer (IE). Additionally, on January 31, 2006, Internet Explorer will no longer be available for download. Microsoft officially stopped developing IE for the Mac in June of 2003.

From Microsoft's Mactopia Web site: "It is recommended that Macintosh users migrate to more recent web browsing technologies such as Apple's Safari."

Safari is Apple's free web browser that comes bundled with all new Macs, as well as Mac OS X 10.3 and 10.4. Alternative browsers are also available, including Firefox, OmniWeb, Opera, and Camino. A more extensive list of browsers is available at the Versiontracker Web site.
