  1. @dfthdfg: Not true anymore – Windows Updates can be largely gotten through the Automatic Updates tool. In Windows XP, this is quite a good thing if IE happens to be broken. In Windows Vista, updates are done strictly through this application – it is /not/ web-based. I presume the same is true of Windows 7, though I haven’t tried it — and the recent buzz is that it will be possible to remove IE8 from Windows 7. This is definitely a step in the right direction.

    Sadly, helping out on a broken computer or two, I’ve had dust off my manual FTP skills, when IE is too broken to download Firefox. :/

  2. Gotta include all that time testing websites so that they work in IE. Which also accounts for the majority of time it takes to develop a website.

    Sigh.

  3. interesting that the IE supporter displays the grammar of a gibbon …’your’ is you’re….feel free to keep on using IE

  4. what is it about IE that pisses you folks off?

    i find that i’m able to do ANYTHING i want- ANYTIME i want to do it with IE.

    i guess folks just need a bandwagon to jump on.

    or maybe it’s that so many people have such a lack of life that they need to ***** and moan about anything and everything- just to fit in and be accepted?

    ******* pathetic!

  5. you forgot testing your website for “cross browsing”.

    Downloading Firefox and seeing if my clients websites work on multiple browsers is all I use IE for haha

  6. Internet Explorer has somewhere in the 40 – 50% range market share still. This graph is such a crock and not funny. And I’m a Firefox user.

  7. Heads up! You’re using an older version of Internet Explorer.

    To get the maximum amount of pleasure while browsing this and other websites
    you can download for free any one of these
    FireFox,
    Chrome,
    Opera or
    Safari.
    If you are using a work computer where you are not allowed to install software yourself you
    can use Portable Apps
    to make it possible to run FireFox without even having to “install” it…

    🙂

  8. The only real good reason to use IE is to download Firefox after installing Windows and to download updates as quickly as possible.
