Yes, I’m holding a grudge. :P

+1 , I think the point of view of the article is a little deceiving though, it doesnt show firefox or opera in the site and it shows no source code of the app(we dont know if there were prefixes or javascript) it looks like something that was designed for a mobile app which I wouldn’t expect it to work in any IE. Im not defending IE I think it will eventually die but its not going anywhere anytime soon, so I either have to deal with what Microsoft puts out or change my career field.

As far as I’m concerned, MS should be banned from ever producing another browser.

Nuff’ said.

I’ve always wondered why they do IEs, especially these days when there are much better and still free solutions, even from Google (the major and long time trusted player in the world who everybody knows).

I am willing to cash out a huge donation to stop MS doing web browsers so please let me know when somebody organizes something like that.

To say it more clearly, normal people these days spend probably more time in web browsers UI than in OS UI so the question is what should be more “stable”... This only shows how Microsoft is incapable of writing clean, fast and especially working code by already set standards (no innovations needed/expected from them). I also don’t understand why devs in Mozilla can do it and they can’t, that’s somewhat “magical”.

Remember not to make the mistake of thinking Microsoft does not purposely cripple IE, because I would wager that they absolutely do. They know that they have a huge percentage of browser market share, and they know they can use that to hold back the web as much as they can. The last thing Microsoft wants is web apps (and by extension, eventually a web-based OS) taking off, for obvious reasons.

Maybe it’s something lucrative.. Like Mozilla secretly owned by Microsoft and they consistently develop a horrible browser to make Firefox look even better. :D Wouldn’t that be something?

Great point! The pieces comes quite together when you’ve said that.. but hard to tell the true. Hmmm, thinking of virtualization, cloud computing and stuff – that’s the future in eyes of many experts and already happening in some cases.

It’s just a lot of businesses use IE because they think it’s more “secure” (<- lol) and more reliable when it comes to security fixes and stuff which is not true one bit!

Did you know? Google at one point before Chrome were paying $1 per download of Firefox to get rid of IE.
