    I love these old stories coming out about the early days of the web. A banner on YouTube killed half the IE6 users, once it was mostly dead anyway. Though I love how they had the freedom to do it without the top brass knowing. It is a worrying thing that they have even more power nowadays as they could kill off bigger fish.
