Stop (using) IE

Reasons to Stop forever using IE

Simple version:
4. Speed – It’s slower
3. Security – It’s less secure
2. Memory Suck – It slows down your system
1. Code Problems – You won’t have the full experience

Longer version
Browser comparison
Browser Speed Tests


So why all the hatred?

Because if you have IE, you, most likely have an old version. It’s a magnet for viruses and a nightmare for website developers.  You shouldn’t care about the latter, but we, developers, suffer. Beleive me. If everybody in the world switched from IE, our job would be much more pleasant. Everytime we have to deal with IE’s peculiar properties, we wish it burned in hell. The reason I don’t give you technical details is that you won’t read them. Google it. The fact remains.


What should I use?

Choice 1: Chrome ; Choice 2: Firefox


If you don’t want to switch from IE:

At least, upgrade to the latest version. You have to.


If you need more proof:

German government tells you.
Thousand of businesses urge users to upgrade from IE6
Test results for HTML5 support
