        who is the noob using IE?

        I look forward to the day when everyone programs in html, css & javascript. Then everyone will know how much web developers hate IE and why.

        I thought about building a website with some kind of wanted and popular information. Upon entering the site it would grab your browser type and if you were using IE it would open a HUGE block that says:

        "You appear to be using the virus known as Internet Explorer to view this page. Please download a real browser so we can provide you with the content you requested."

        {links to firefox, safari and chrome}

        Did you know: Microsoft played a huge part in creating the CSS2 standard, they then built a browser that doesn't use the standard. Awesome.

        Web developer rant: There is nothing more annoying than building a programmers work-of-art in web design just to find out that most of it doesn't work or look the same in IE. That's when you get to to go back and write in all the exceptions and rework your stylesheet to cater to the bullshit browser known as internet explorer. Fun.

              I use FireFox.

              Google is has a conflict-of-interest in the browser market since they are an advertising company and, like, Facebook make $$$ by accumulating data on you and selling it. Ten years from now, Google might not be a trustworthy company.

              Any company can end up being a tyrant eventually, but only if you give them that power.

              As a non-profit product FireFox probably can't be "corrupted".

                  Firefox because it's the best of a bad lot. I don't need browser bling and at least Firefox lets me easily disable some of that crap. I don't really trust Google that much either.

                    Chrome since team off FF seems to have forgotten their policy of fast webbrowser that requies less RAM and CPU...

                      aye, chrome seems to be a decent browser, but I just don't trust google. too many processes running in the background that are not actually chrome...
                      I used opera for a while. not too bad a browser, but javascript issues with it can turn it into a slug (blame the site, but there were a lot of them at the time).
                      so yeah, I use firefox-with-noscript. advertise at me if you want but don't fingerprint all the different properties wrongly exposed by javascript, and don't use those really insanely annoying floating things covering up what I'm trying to read.
                      firefox is still a fairly lame browser.

                        Comodo Dragon browser, because firefox eats up too many resources, i mean come on 300,000 memory use etc and opening more than 1 tab or firefox window ur computer might aswell literally grow legs and crawl... Comodo Dragon is derived from the google chrome browser but works alot better *imo Download BROWSER, Buy BROWSER Software - Comodo
