The web as we know it today was built on the back of IE6. You name the client-side technology, and it started, however flawed, during the era of PAX Internet Explorer, because there was nothing but.
Don't get me wrong, I'd like to see IE6 go, too. Everything becomes obsolete. But outrage flies in the face of the natural progression of such things.
Everyone benefitted when IE6 was aux courant, standards in infancy, and Gecko buried in seemingly endless development. The "problems" in IE6 exist in hindsight.
If you think of browser technology on the whole as a single evolving thing, how many new software technologies get it completely right early on?
So what else is new?
Google's plug-in is an interesting thing and I hope it helps.
