The only people that say that are idiots who think it's still "a few moons ago." Live in the now, man. Things change. Good things get bad. Bad things get good.
IE9 is consistently rated as good as the others. It's lacking only one thing for me: spell check. That keeps me in FireFox usually, but I find IE9 faster (almost as fast as Chrome.) I think FireFox has gotten kind of bad, but dislike Chrome because, quite honestly, Google knows enough about me.


You are right. However, there is better alternatives to Firefox and Chrome but I'm not talking about IE, I'm talking about Waterfox (Firefox port) and SRware Iron (Chrome port). Waterfox is basically a fast version of FireFox (it's also 64bits and portable) and Iron is Chrome but doesn't submit any private data at all and is also portable. Check them out!

Harold and Kumar take over AMD.

Ha!


Sadly for AMD, having Harold and Kumar in charge does not magically make their processors able to compete with Intel.

It sucks that ATI is going to go down with them.

IE is only finally decent enough for general usage, great job only took twelve years, still lacks the customization of Firefox and Chrome. I rarely see anyone actually choose to use it once they are aware of other choices. This was the web browser Microsoft had to force onto the world, they really should rebrand it at some point because no one fucking likes it and it doesn't matter how much marketing they dump into it.

Also fuck Bing. A friend of mine has a windows phone and he can't even change the search away from Bing. He's already been asking alot of questions about my android phone and he's had the thing for all of a week.

Oh, and Microsoft is quite aware of these opinions and are having fun with it - http://browseryoulovedtohate.com/

Oh cool, I have never even heard of Waterfox before - odd name that it is - but I'm going to try it!

You didn't initiate a conversation, instead you called names.

I don't give a shit what 'reviews' say about anything ever. All browsers run about the same speed, do the same things, its about security nub.

I run businesses and Firefox with no script beats any version of IE every time. I get paid ridiculously well to know these things, and I pass this on to you for no charge.

Next time tho... I'll need your credit card, and not one from your mom...

You're wrong with just about everything you've ever said. I'll add this to the list.

I don't even know why I bother. You don't know how to respond to anything. You just throw out old, outdated opinions and never back anything up. It often seems doubtful that you form these opinions on your own.

Just google "IE9 Review" and see - more or less every single one is glowing. Ars called it "a triumph." Was it perfect? No, but it was competitive enough that only a moron would say "only people that don't know better use IE." That's what people said in 2009. It's no longer true. Now the uninformed people are the ones still spewing such trash.

And unable to actually have a dialogue: Axis!

However I do stand corrected, there are some who know of alternatives and still choose to use IE, we call these people nublets...

Just a few moons ago, IE was 'riding high' with over 90% of the market share. Now they sit at 49% and they're happy.

Truth is they should be. The only people who use IE are the ones tho don't know about alternatives...
