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'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..."

for the last several years IE 5.5 and IE 6.0 has pretty much been the only browser out there so it is the defacto standard and 97 some odd percent usage makes it a very tough standard. When Netscape had those kind of numbers even the high and mighty microsoft had to bend and do things netscape's way until they got enough market share to start doing things their own way.
