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.

I like asking IE haters to give 2 reasons why they don't like it.

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.

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
