Re: Microsoft to IE haters: You're sad

I love at the end how Microsoft admits IE still sucks...just less.

You apparently identify with the guy in the video. Clue, it wasn't MS that was seen typing that comment.

But it was Microsoft that made the video.

I just can't stand the way IE10 renders fonts on the desktop. It deeply hurts my eyes. But they do look beautiful on WP8 version of IE10.

Why don't you change the font then? My IE 10 uses Verdana and it looks exactly the same as IE8 on my beloved XP.

What is "WP8"?

A 'Windows Phone 8' phone, such as Nokia's latest.

The point of this commercial (if that is what it is) is completely lost on me. Some may say that that is ironic. I can't possibly see how this would grow MS's market share.

But the visuals are strong. The words IE SUCKS are now firmly embedded in my brain. I'm not sure what I should do with that information, given that I use IE almost constantly, every hour of the business day (our CVS system front-end runs on it on my computers).

Here, let me read it to you.

Huh. That's not the part I remember. Kinda reminds me of the ill-fated Seinfeld/Gates commercial. All I remember from that one was the shoe salesman saying, "Those shoes run a little tight." Never understood that one either.

Well, some people understand the stuff that others don't. We don't all have the capacities.

I have my IE6 set to "TIMES NEW ROMAN" (Actually i didnt ever change it from that) and it looks excellent!

Try TIMES NEW ROMAN (UNDER LATIN BASED) and see if you like it Mele! (And Courier NEW for the other one)

Re: Microsoft to IE haters: You're sad

The browser wars have been going on for quite some time, and will likely continue.

I got a call from a friend - he couldn't understand why his favorites bar was gone. He had installed Chrome (has no idea how - probably came bundled with something else he installed), and it became his default browser.

The Adobe flash player update is one that could have installed Chrome and set it as the default.

I don't really care two turds about who uses what browser. I've found that Opera best suits me, and that in comparison, every version of IE since 5 or 6 have just been horribly slow. Nevermind the fact I've fallen in love with Opera's mouse gestures (any other browsers doing that yet?). Never gave FF or Chrome a shot for that reason alone.

As for the vid, it leaves me with the impression that IE sucks, and MS knows it. Just not as much as it used to.
