Stumbled across this today on Microsoft’s Internet Explorer for Mac page:
There’s nothing like getting your ass handed to you by companies that care to do innovative things with their browsers... not to mention, follow standards. I so dream of the day where I don’t have to worry about box-model hacks and other idiotic browser-war throw-me-backs.
Not saying that IE for Mac wasn’t the most standards-compliant browser of its day, because at one time, it was. But as we all know in the internet world, things change quickly. Unfortunately, for Microsoft, they didn’t change along with it (hence why nearly 85% of the world browses with lackluster IE 5.5 or 6.0).
Again, I urge you (if you haven’t already done so), ditch Internet Explorer and get yourself a better browser! Don’t take my word for it, just look at the graphic above, it tells the story.
