It doesn`t have to be absolute truth, it`s an advertisement.. but it`s the kind of advertisement that`s compelling enough to be influential. Proper respect to that which is very uncommon.

The installer kept locking up and crashing, so I was never even able to get it to run. Sorry, but I never got far enough for a second reason, but I`m pretty sure there would have been at least one other.

Maybe they are worried because it looks like Chrome has surpassed IE in popularity and there`s a definite downward trend for IE:

Since I like using Safari, that makes me nothing like a lemming since a lemming would be doing what everyone around them is doing.

It`s slow, it`s a resource hog and it makes writing web languages a tedious nightmare. There`s three.

I like asking IE haters to give 2 reasons why they don`t like it.

Very seldom can give 1, let alone 2 concrete reasons. Lemmings.

"I`ve yet to meet a web developer that has had anything nice to say about IE. It is a plague on the pursuit of consistent web standards."

That`s exactly why I won`t touch it. After years of making special exceptions in my web code because Microsoft refused to build IE according to W3 Consortium standards, I have a deserved hatred of IE. Even if it conforms perfectly now I can`t forget all the years of agony developing and poor web experiences in general when other developers made their website ONLY work well in IE and didn`t worry about everyone else`s experience.

IE gets more flak than it deserves these days due to everyone getting on to the bandwagon. But I`m guilty of that too since I use Chrome.

I actually gave IE another look a few months ago. Firefox is a memory hog, and Chrome was missing some critical features that I absolutely need. I downloaded the latest IE and gave it a try. The level of suck was beyond the comprehension of God Himself.

I`m back to Firefox -- still the best of a sorry lot.

It is not the Browser I love to hate, it is just the browser that I never use and have forgotten about. The forever alone browser.

When I started on the World Wide Web, the "information super highway",
It was a choice between IE or AOL.

I think I made the right choice.

Well, I, for one, CAN say something nice about IE.

Fifteen years ago, it was better than Netscape.

Karaoke? Does it include a naked woman grinding on my lap and a BJ in the ensuite bathroom? If not, I need the Asian edition.

I like the lit keyboard.
Had one of those but I switched to a solar powered cordless one.
I like it much more.

Oh... and I like IE

Hmmm, that *might* convince me to go have a look at it. Maybe. I`m not a hater, just like my chrome. :-)
