Windows 7: IE6 RIP IE9 Comes into Focus.

05 Mar 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
IE6 RIP IE9 Comes into Focus.

A very dignified bouquet of flowers from Microsoft arrived at the address of a Denver venue on Thursday, March 4, 2010, where mourners had gathered for a tongue-in-cheek funeral of Internet Explorer 6. The Redmond company obviously wanted to compensate for its absence from the funeral ceremony, unable to break away from the Internet Explorer 9 development process (pure speculation on my part). The event advertised via the IE6Funeral website was put together as a publicity stunt by Aten Design Group, but, of course, the real joke is that IE6 is not only not dead, but also nowhere near expiration.

Folders don't get focus
Hi, on a fresh install of Win 7 64 bit, in some situations when I open a folder (for eg. when I right-click on a link and choose open containing folder), the folder doesn't come to the front.
