Google to kill off IE6 support in 2010

In a big move by Google I just received an email letting me know that Google will be phasing out support for IE6 in Google Apps in 2010.
"In order to continue to improve our products and deliver more sophisticated features and performance, we are harnessing some of the latest improvements in web browser technology. This includes faster JavaScript processing and new standards like HTML5. As a result, over the course of 2010, we will be phasing out support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 ​as well as other older browsers that are not supported by their own manufacturers."

I think this is a phenominal move by a company as big as Google to say "not anymore". I wish other companies would take such a firm stance against my other pet peeves. You know, ActiveX, Flash, and Silverlight.
