Microsoft has announced that it will no longer offer Internet Explorer downloads for Macintosh computers. This announcement was made over two years ago but by the end of January it will be in effect. Honestly, most people do not use Internet Explorer on their Mac’s, and often resort to Safari or Firefox. For those that do use Internet Explorer, however, hopefully we will start to see them switching to Firefox and picking up the pieces that Microsoft has left behind. This could prove to be another boost for Firefox in the browser war with Internet Explorer. If you are a user of the Macintosh Internet Explorer, then you might want to make a switch by December 31, 2005 because Microsoft will stop offering the security updates at that time.
