Great article from StatCounter says that IE6 has dropped below 5%, giving me a reason to get rid of this 8 year old laptop I have on my desk to test websites in the ancient browser. Of course you are still in trouble if you're target audience is Africa… but if so, I think you knew that anyway.

For those of you who haven’t checked out Google’s Wave, you should. Wave is many things, but if I had to give it a label, I would call it an excellent Document Collaboration Commander! Wave is the first place I go to write my blogs. It helps to jot down notes quickly; it keeps the document on the internet so I have access to it from any computer; and allowing a friend to review my blog is as easy as adding them as a participant (thanks Mike). When Mike and I need to write something for Club AJAX, we jump on Wave and both start banging out ideas. We don’t have to worry about duplicated efforts, because we can see what the other is writing, even as we are writing it. In fact, this synchronization usually propagates more ideas. You’ve heard me trumpet the paperless office before – think how much money Wave saves you from the multiple times of printing that document, proofing, highlighting edits, scribbling in the margins, changing, saving, and reprinting. Wave is a fantastic, free productivity and collaboration tool. But is it all that it could be?

The Pope Paul V to my Galileo.
The Internet Explorer to my Firefox.
And there ya go. You were wondering what that picture was doing on the Club AJAX blog, weren’t you?
