Most people are creatures of habit. Just look at almost any Analytics report now days and you’ll still see that around 20% of most “average” web visitors still use Internet Explorer 6… a browser that was released in 2001 and is EXTREMELY out of date.
So, in an effort to change some of my own habits and try something new, I decided to try setting my default browser from Internet Explorer 8 to Google Chrome.
The following paragraphs are a few of my observations on the browser and how well it performs in everyday environments.
I really don’t know who mr. Internet is… or if there really is such a thing. I tend to think of him (at least in my mind) as the wizard behind the curtain in the Wizard of Oz.
But, unlike the Wiz’, I’m not asking him for a heart, for courage, or for a brain… I’m asking him to kill, murder, all around X-Out Internet Explorer 6.
It was born in 2001, lived a good live… but it has since been replaced by Internet Explorer 7 and 8. So, it’s time to put it to pasture or… frankly, just put a bullet in it’s source code and be over with it.
