Support for IE on the Mac ends this month

Support for Internet Explorer on the Mac will end at the end of this year according to Mactopia:


“Microsoft will end support for Internet Explorer for Mac on December 31st, 2005, and will provide no further security or performance updates.

Additionally, as of January 31st, 2006, Internet Explorer for the Mac will no longer be available for download from Mactopia. It is recommended that Macintosh users migrate to more recent web browsing technologies such as Apple’s Safari.”


It’s interesting and nice of Microsoft to suggest the replacement of Safari. Seems to make sense, why would they promote their biggst threat FireFox?


Over time the end of support will naturally cause the 2% IE/Mac share to migrate over to the other popular browsers available for the Mac… Safari and FireFox.
