[FB] Internet Explorer Falls Below 50% Market Share Mark - Page 5

post #41 of 88
Finally...

In our company we have to ensure IE compatibility ( of course ) but we ditched the IE7...
The damn browser just... sucks... it's amazing... were everything works in FF, Chrome, Opera & Safari ( older versions ) ... the IE just creates these weird behaviors that we can't explain. The time and money that we must spend to bug fixing isn't worth it.

Now, IE9, for me, it's a really good browser. I mean, when talking about Microsoft this is. My daily browser is Chrome.

I use IE9 and I like it, if for no other reason I'm a windows minimalist. I like to have as few programs installed as possible. That includes swaping programs too.

It does its job, never had a problem with it. If it's a bit faster/slower... I don't really think I'll notice it in my rig.

So, there, dirty IE user here.

Incompatibility with some of my addons.
Stupid version naming (thanks, google)
It's a memory hog.
It's becoming bloated.

Sadly it's falling towards everything it strived not to be
'It's a memory hog'
I disagree, what is 300MB compared to 6GB total :\\ and you have even more than me, why are you worried about memory usage.


'Stupid version naming' yeah that does suck, but version numbers aren't enough to stop me from using a browser lol

'It's becoming bloated'
Doesn't seem bloated to me :\\


'Incompatability with addons'
I use Firefox 9.0a2 and theres a few addons that don't officially work with the version, but a few about:config changes will let you install them - for example Greasemonkey, I havn't noticed any issues with it yet.

It's not surprising considering all the alternatives out there. But IE9 is pretty decent good speeds and minimalism like Chrome.

Chrome > IE9 i use them both but Chrome sees 90% of the use.

TBH I think this image sums all the browsers up perfectly. Hence why I use Opera

Safari on OS X is great, and even more so on Lion in which it is both incredibly secure (I'd say more than any browser by a fair amount in large part to Safari taking advantage of application sandboxing on Lion (it's a split process)) and fast. It's not so great on Windows, I use both versions every day.

Hurray for FireFox and Chrome. Now if only Rekonq and Midori could a little more features I'd be using them more.
It's pretty fast actually? Especially on Lion... but still fast on Snow Leopard, etc.
(It wasn't always, for the record. They've improved a lot in the last two years or so.)

Chrome is noticeably better on Windows, and I did use it but I spend a lot more time browsing on Mac so I'd rather keep Safari (as my bookmarks are kept in sync with Safari, same for reading list, etc.)

Anyway I only came to boo IE because I literally hate it and cheer Safari because I love it. I still think Chrome and FireFox (more so the former) are great browsers although I don't use them anymore.
