Internet Explorer 8 (IE8)... it has a button that looks like a torn piece of paper called “Compatibility View: websites designed for older browsers will often look better, and problems such as out-of-place menus, images, or text will be corrected.”

Well, OF COURSE websites are designed for older browsers, IE 8 is brand new! If they know it’s not going to look right, they need to just make it look right to begin with, without having to click a button. That’s like saying,”Hi, I suck. Click this button so I won’t suck any more.”

Why do I need IE8 as a Flash developer?

They serve NO purpose, they only cause problems! Also, when used on purpose, I still find them annoying. ;) :) :(

IE sucks.

Whether IE sucks or not is not an issue, it’s the most widely used browser accross the board.

Whether or not IE8 is going to make an impact is a different story, to tell you the truth i haven’t even heard of it until i seen this thread, and that is a pritty good indicator that:

A: Mainstream doesn’t even know it exists yet

B: It’s bound to have a wildfire of bugs and bullshit problems with it as it is fairly new/

I agree though, its like what egobuilders said, this new feature seems like a pure crap gimmick that is like saying “Hi, I suck. Click this button so I won’t suck any more.”

LMAO !

STRAIGHT UP ! LOL
