Microsoft and Internet Explorer: Blunders

Hello! I am very happy today because Filehippo is one of the few popular platforms to announce this: Internet Explorer is a big blunder. Yeah, everybody knows it and it can be proved at least in the cases of IE 6 or 7 or 8. But not IE 9 or IE 10 or IE 11. Check this out:

Internet Explorer has, is and always will be a blunder. Let’s go back to the late 90’s and get a brief insight of how Internet Explorer was born. There used to be this browser.. uh.. the Netscape Navigator (also known as the sea green coloured box with a white N).

Netscape was an instant hit because there was no other browser in the market. Bill Gates with his slew of chiefs decided to ship Internet Explorer for free with its every copy of Windows. Netscape began incurring losses, and soon it went bankrupt. Internet Explorer was the undisputed king of web browsers. Mozilla was born at the Netscape headquarters in 1998 using the source code of Netscape, albeit with a few enhancements, what is now called the Firefox. This gave people choice and made the competition tough for IE. In around 2005, Q2, Mozilla engineers stopped developing Firefox and until now, is being developed by open source developers.

Why I am telling you this story is because Internet Explorer was, is and always has been a means to make money for Microsoft. Nothing else. Every time these fools release a new version of IE, hundreds of vulnerabilities come up. Then the patches. (LOL!) Such things never happen with Firefox or Chrome (though occasionally Chrome also fails to give security). So never ever try and realise that IE is a good browser. Microsoft only uses it as a means of money.

I am hoping for a nice debate on this, if you have read the full article.

    • You have made it funnier by saying what they send are sort of bicycle tire punctures….. You see they are doing it for money, money and LOTS OF MONEY!!! But they don’t realise that it’s time they adopted Firefox as inbuilt Windows browser (coz Chrome is rival Google’s property!)
