Well, guys. You did it. You finally did it. You mocked an Internet browser so ruthlessly and relentlessly over the years that Microsoft is actually getting rid of it.

Good job, gang! And R.I.P. to Internet Explorer, a program that existed solely to allow Internet users everywhere to download a different browser.

While speaking at Microsoft Convergence on Monday, Microsoft's marketing chief Chris Capossela confirmed that they are phasing out Internet Explorer and are instead developing a new browser they are currently calling "Project Spartan."

IE will still exist in some version of Windows 10, but basically, this is the end for the browser the world loved to hate. So it's only fitting that the Internet said goodbye to the program by mocking it for old time's sake:

Fare thee well, Internet Explorer. You were such an easy target for so long, but now you must head to the Internet graveyard where you will be buried next to LiveJournal, Kazaa and the old AIM away messages that held late-90s song lyrics so we could adequately express our deepest emotions.
