Now I’m joining to bandwagon of the haters of Internet Explorer. I’m starting to share the sentiments of those real web designers in their disgust over Microsoft’s web browser called the “Internet Explorer”.
Why, can’t just people using the internet scrap IE altogether? It’s a nightmare for web designers. It’s a total crap, don’t you realize? I’m offering some reasons why you should do so. This is not an inclusive list, you might want to check the 101 things that the Mozilla browser can do that IE cannot for a more detailed list.
- It is not internet design standards compliant – talk about CSS2 and CSS3
- It’s not safe for web browsing – read browsehappy
- It is proprietary – it’s Microsoft’s, remember?
- It’s not flexible – check out the vast collection of addons in firefox.
What are the Alternatives
You might call me a Mozilla (especially Firefox) fan. Not quite. I’m listing down below your alternatives. Choose one or all, just not IE (be it 6, 7 or even the upcoming IE8).
(Update: Google Chrome and Flock browsers were added as alternative browsers to Internet Explorer)
