Lockergnome: Why You Should Dump Internet Explorer

Wednesday June 16th, 2004

Chris Pirillo wrote in to tell us about a new article on Lockergnome entitled Why You Should Dump Internet Explorer: "The time has come to dump Internet Explorer. I know, I know — you may have heard the same thing before from those that think it's cool to hate Microsoft; but I'm not one of those guys. I'm actually an MCSE and I happen to like quite a few of Microsoft's products. Rather than lump me into the Microsoft-basher category, consider for a moment why you use the browser you use, and humor me by entertaining the notion — if even for a second — that switching to another might be worth your while..."

#2 Great approach.

I pretty much feel the same way. It's about time less people saw switching away from IE less as mindless anti-Microsoft rhetoric and more as using the better tool for the job. I don't mind MS and don't see them as some evil corporate entity trying to take over the world, but their insistence on haphazard ActiveX advocacy, lackadaisical approach to Web standards, and flagging innovation in the mail/browser arena forced me to switch to Mozilla products.
