According to Microsoft’s Dean Hachamovitch, IE6 was easily the best browser available in 2001. He’s partially right. It could be argued that the best browser available in 2001 was indeed a version of Internet Explorer… Internet Explorer 5 Macintosh Edition, that is, which was released on March 27, 2000. IE5 Mac is no longer being supported by Microsoft, but it was a godsend in its day, being the first major browser with decent Web standards support, PNG support, etc.
