quote RedemptionPartly agree and partly disagree about the port... To be honest, in these 'modern' days and technology having improved so much people should just drop XP in favour of 7/8 which has been improved by miles.Still waiting for IE10 to be final before switching. I already know today IE10 fixes a few very annoying bugs in IE8/IE9 so I'm happy. Wish they'd port it all the way down to XP though. I know its a lot of work for them, but the world suffers greatly by MS not doing this.
quote DynamiteThis so much - if they could add that, it'd be a much better (and more popular) browser.The only thing that IE is missing right now is addons on par with Chrome or FF. I do miss some of them.
quote harbinDear God, no thanks. One of the reasons I switched back to IE on Windows is because I was fed up of the continual updates pushed by other browsers which ended up breaking previously functional stuff or causing issues with Flash. I'm more than happy with them pushing critical security fixes only and keeping the major release branch otherwise stable.I do think that if Microsoft want to regain market share with Internet Explorer, they should adopt a different update model for it. The other major browsers update on a regular basis to improve performance, security or add features such as support for CSS3, HTML5, etc.. whereas IE gets a major update periodically (usually two IE releases per Windows release
quote ComputerEdIf sites are developed to standards then there shouldn't need to be any optimisation for browsers though, but the problem with that is that each browser conforms to standards slightly differently. Text rendering is done differently each browser, some browsers display 'thin, medium or thick' differently unless you try and account for that in the CSS, and certain browsers support different things in CSS3 and HTML5 making it selective at times.At the end of the day however my gripe with the internet is not the browser but rather the site developers. Everyone seems to want to optimize to a browser, why not just use the standards and be done so everyone works right?
