I loved this bit especially:
Now, that's what you call a crash!

Bump - I can't believe geeks aren't interested in a review of obsolete software that nobody uses any more!
Heck, that hard crash alone is worth some giggles, lol.
Interesting. My company had IE6 installed on every computer until not even half a year ago when they finally upgraded to IE8. Glad it wasn't Netscape lol. That being said I remember browsing the Net with Netscape as a kid, with Win98. But as so many else we migrated to IE with WinXP.
Well, your company is still a lot more progressive than ours - a default PC image is still XP with IE6.
And IE6 is causing lots of problems with general browsing and it's now impossible to log into SSL sites, because some group policy setting has changed on Active Directory. Why stick with IE6? Because of one or two crappy apps that won't work properly with anything later.
In fact, to resolve the SSL issue, we do upgrade the browser on request... to IE7. Great, innit? :shadedshu IE8 definitely causes problems with them, but IE7 is usually ok.
shoulda just linked the slide show
Hehe, this is my favourite: www.networkworld.com/slideshows/2011/022411-browser-ie6-netscape.html#slide6
