The reason I dislike Internet Explorer is because it actually forms part of your Desktop, the Explorer.exe.
Explorer is the entire Desktop System. It allows you to, funnily enough, explore your computer. That said, several years back Microsoft had the great idea of embedding the two, making Explorer & Internet Explorer work together.
While they were two separate programes, this meant that in most cases, if one failed so did the other. Numerous times my Internet Explorer would crash, and my whole Desktop would crash also, forcing me to run a new explorer.exe from the Task Manager.
Bad design from the software engineers, not to mention its inbuilt security systems suck and it looks horrible. I use Firefox, Chrome & Safari.
Am I the only one that thinks this commercial doesn't have much to do with IE?
The newer internet explorers aren't bad
In many ways the newest beats firefox, though I think chrome is still superior. The issue you might be having is just getting used to using a different browser. I just recently switched from firefox to chrome and found chrome annoying in a lot of aspects at first but I've grown accustomed to the layout now and figured out how to do things I initially though chrome was just missing.
I just can't see how people like how slow IE is. Also I'm not sure how that advertisement for the new IE is suppose to help. Saying you suck less now?
This is relevant
I don't know what the deal is with IE... it really does suck in comparison. I haven't used it fully since the 90s.
