I'm being forced to use IE8, help me god. - Page 3

post #21 of 37
Well I have been using IE9 all day on my work laptop and I can say it truly is a POS.
I have stopped working errors and the UI is all spread out across the top and all over the place. Why is it so hard to keep the browsing controls together...

Your SSD has nothing at all to do with the speed of IE8.
You don't think that the maximum of around 40MB/s of a regular hard drive is enough to open a 500KB page?

Show them IE9 downloads on day 1 vs FF4 downloads on day 1. It's not chrome but, hey, better than IE8.

Problem solved?

So we are rounding up every single pro's / con's about IE8 and Chrome, and why we should use Chrome.

Our "boss's" argument is that IE8:
- has much better compatibility than Chrome.
- its safer.
- we are only against IE because we are against the browser that is the most spread. (not true)
- and last and probably least, its "just as good as Chrome"..

Our argument to not use IE8:
- over the 3 months we used IE (before we starting using Chrome @ work), we had never seen so many "ie has stop working" errors. (not a great argument, but its true)
- Chrome is faster and safer. (we cant verify that Chrome is safer but for the fact that Google offered $20,000 to the one who could hack the browser has got to say something)
- Using the url bar for Google speed things up while now we've got to use Bing unless we go to google.com first and than search, but time is money.

Feel free to join the argument, give me reasons to use IE instead of Chrome and the other way around..
IE8 has the least compatibility of ANY browser.
IE8 is the LEAST safe browser and using it will most likely nab you a shiny new virus.
I do believe most inexperianced computer users use IE8 and thats why most have virus'.
IE8 is the SLOWEST browser out there google browser benchmarks.
IE8 has MANY stability issues.
Chrome is proven to be faster AND safer than IE8.
Google is by far the best search engine and Bing is terrible and it takes forever to find something with it.
There is NO good reason to use IE8. IE8 is the worst piece of junk.
Now if you downloaded IE9 than I would have to say use that as it is now the fastest browser.

Bring USB flash drive
Use portable Firefox

PROBLEM SOLVED

And yeah, whenever I even try to use IE, it goes to "not responding" so often it's not even funny. Only takes seconds before it does that and stays like that for minutes at a time. Far from a stable browser.

Why in the world didn't I think of that? Would have been good nice to figure that out little bit earlier before my co-worker attacked his keyboard when IE "stopped responding", crashed and for some reason didn't restore his taps, I think he litteraly had every website in the world open when it happened..

Now he has to use a keyboard without "F" and "G".

Chrome allows you to browse in a Sandbox which keeps you less exposed than a browser such as IE8 will ever do.

Show that to your boss.

Or, find a theme for firefox that makes it look similar to IE. He probably wouldn't even notice if it didn't say "Mozilla Firefox" in the taskbar. But then, you could change that too

You may have missed the easiest solution of all.

Just buy the company and then you can use whatever you want !!!

Feel free to call me if you need anymore answers for this stuff. I'll be solving the world population problem while I'm resting.

IE8 is slower because it uses a special type of coding, so basically websites have 2 versions the IE version and every other version. So IE takes extra time to load its special ed page.
