I can't tell whether you're being sarcastic or you're really that much of a Microsoft fanboy.
He's that much of troll....
Why are you still feeding him?
He generally lives in my ignore list but i've been using the front page recently instead of the forums so i've seen the crap he types.
The UK has consistently made the wrong decisions for well over 100 years, the only two good ones that stand out are electing Churchill and joining the EU (which is still half-arsed with keeping the pound).
I think you are a troll, so I won't say much more, other than be honest with yourself and try FF or one of the others, educate yourself and the choice will be clear, FF and the Euro!
There's a thread on this on BiT somewhere recent - apparently this and many other sites rely on the advert actually being shown, so if it ain't, the site doesn't get paid. That put BiT and a few others on the whitelist (to which the block ain't applied); indeed, the only people I purposely block are the 'Cheezburger Network' and I'll continue to do so until they stop trying to ruin humour.
That percentage is declining; hence the title of this thread's article.
Many, many IE installations are in offices, schools and other places where sysadmins won't let you install your own browsers; there, choice is a bit of a fallacy.
Choice = good. If you've tried the others and prefer IE, more power to you. On the other hand, expect your opinions to be robustly contested by people hiding behind a veil of anonymity on the internet.
I take it you aren't from the UK so you just don't understand the problem between the UK and EU. I'm not going to knock you for that. People in mainland Europe embrace the EU, people in the UK don't and it will be very difficult to get to the same level of respect for it. However, FF is NOT the answer.
Those figures are upto date and accurate. Take from that what you will.
Yes, that anonymity thing. We all saw what Jay and Silent Bob did at the end of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back!
On all my school's PC's, there is a reason why almost every computer has Firefox Portable, Chrome Portable, Opera Portable, etc splattered all over the desktop, while IE whimpers in a corner.
The sysadmins approve, apparently, since they're not insane, or mentally incapable...
but you're still reluctant to post your 'source'. lol. Talk is cheap. Put up or shut up.
I can't say I'm surprised. Developing websites for IE (and yes there are lots of people still using IE6 & 7) is a pain
internet explorer sucks im suprised it took ppl this long for people to realise it. lol
Agreed! I'm surprised not more people are taking up google chrome and using it! It is a brilliant browser if like me you don't really use add ins
Personally I think Google Chrome is a very good browser
bookmark syncing within the browser
I only use IE at work now for some IE only applications
Otherwise its google chrome all the way
Scroll to the bottom...IE does very badly in Acid 3 - Webkit (Safari & Chrome) & Firefox do much better.
For years I swore by IE but just recently I switched to Chrome and I haven't looked back since. It feels a lot faster than IE and looks a lot smoother.
