Just because somebody uses IE doesn't make them stupid in any way. People just have certain preferences as to which browser they prefer, and the majority of the time they will use that browser. If you are basing your statement on this, you are still wrong because it's a hoax.

Anyways...I think the main reason why IE is going down is because of the competitors advertising their products more, particularly google. As some of you non-google chrome users know, every time you go to the google homepage it shows the 'install google chrome' button on the top right. That's probably the main reason why it has risen ~15%.

IE8 seems to "think" about loading google then after about ~5 seconds finally puts the cursor in the search so you can start typing your search (started when they added that you+ shoit..which is also annoying cos you now need to click 'more' to get google shop! )

Is there a way to make Firefox 7 to look exactly like the 3.xx versions? It looks like chrome in Firefox 7... or something similar...

Number 1 being the one you see in the mirror every morning?

I use IE9, never had a problem, never had a glitch.

Go Safari! Hopefully Apple will improve Safari on Windows so it's more like it is on the Mac.
Dude. Seriously. Wrong Forum.

I've been forced to use Apple computers at my high school, and I have never hated a device that much in SOOOO long.

There isn't even a new tab button on safari...

That, and developers are sick of having to code twice since IE has NEVER been web-compliant. It always has it's own special nuances that have plagued the tech world.

IE is a pox on computing. By far the worst supported, most sluggish, useless, whole-ridden browser ever.

Don't even get me started on Corporate Web Apps that have to be used with IE. It's time to move on. There's far better out there. I would use catalogs to buy things before ever using IE on my computer at home.

I don't think IE is that bad, but I don't work in the corporate field nor have much knowledge about the corporate field, so you might be right in that aspect, but Microsoft needs to somehow make some revolutionary web browser in order to compete with their competition, and offer more frequent version updates (although chrome and firefox are currently abusing that, but because of it look how far they have progressed over IE).

Microsoft is basically doing to IE as Apple does to Safari: release a new version every time a new product comes out. Now that I think about it, browsers are very similar to the smartphone market, meaning that there are phones and updates constantly coming out (at least for the android segment), and the new phones that are being released more frequently (every six months I believe?) end up getting purchased more quickly because of the phone's features. I guess another way of saying it is: IE:iOS::FF/Chrome/etc.:Android. A little bit contradicting if you ask me.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that IE is more suited towards the consumer market, particularly conservatives who either don't know/care that there are other options out there, or they don't feel the need to move to another browser, and if one needs a more capable browser either for general use or corporate use, they can just download chrome/ff/etc.

Yes, there is. Perhaps you've got an old Mac running an old version of Safari? I don't know, but there's a little plus in the tab bar on the very right which you can hit to make a new tab, in the latest version. (I think Safari 3.0+ has had this or maybe it's 4.0+.)

Additionally, you can right click anywhere on the grey toolbar area (even on the text field) and go "Customize Toolbar" and add a button to your toolbar, next to bookmarks for example, to add a new tab.

I wish Internet Explorer would just go away. It's bloated, slow in comparison, usually has some stupid bugs, and doesn't trump any other browser in any area.

I won't argue that it hasn't improved but they've a long way to go before it ever deserves more than five percent of the market.
