Warning. Your IE 6.0 Browser Will Self Destruct in 15 Seconds.

Remember when you booted up your computer and that friendly browser quietly appeared, ready to take you anywhere with no fuss?

Not anymore. Now, Microsoft is going to sneak in an upgrade to your IE 6.0 browser. If you don't want it, (and what developer isn't cautious about environments?), read the instructions first.

1.Use the IE7 Readiness Toolkit to prepare for the release of IE7

2.Test and resolve any issues with their Web sites and applications using the Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit 5.0 (ACT 5.0).

3.Determine if their organization is ready for IE7 or needs to delay deployment. Find information on deploying the nonexpiring IE7 Blocker Toolkit on our Web site.

Some programmers and web developers are having a blast testing it. You may want to stop by and take the training, or just watch the daring ones, like John.

Ah, and of course: No, it's not just a browser update. It also forces me to install some tool to avoid bad software. Isn't my system slow enough already? Software firewall, anti-virus, anti-spam, etc. Now I am also forced to use some tool which I have no idea about - no idea what it really does, if it's running now as I type or what it will do.
