    LOL :D
    But latest reports shows that IE is actually more safer than all other browsers
    Dont know whether the reports are sponsored by M$ ;D

    The fact that he’s using IE on a MAC is enough to get him bludgeoned with bats by baby seal ghosts.

    Well no wonder: he’s using it on a Mac. Nothing from anything runs good on a mac, not even OSX stuff.

    ya, Mac’s are for kids & geriatric patients

    Even IE6 at its worst was not that bad.

    Love the hyperbole.

    Let’s make this an equal opportunity thing and attack some other browser for a change. Chrome is worth a laugh or two. Opera is all chuckles.

    Safari otoh is just sad.

    Firefox? I don’t know what to say for it. It does too many things right.

    Ironically to me internet explorer 9 its a good turnout compared to the old ones. Don’t add any add ons and disable everything. It runs pretty good.

    LOL at inaccuracy of the ad.

    -IE 9 ain’t bad
    -You can’t get IE9 on mac
    -Nor windows defender

    But yes, quite funny (:

    ‘You…do realize…its a joke?’ in my best Kirk.

    Made me laugh. Probably because I don’t use IE much.

    Firefox does NOT make me laugh when much the same sort of stuff happens. Probably because I DO use it much.

    And good humor–even the dry, British sort–is funny *because* it’s hyperbolic.

    But seriously. There are only 2 choices when it comes to web browsers: Chrome and Firefox. The only reason I can see that people even put up with IE is because it’s forced on them or they just don’t know any better – pretty much like iOS/OSX and Windows are.

    I mean, if all you ever had was an expensive bicycle (that you had to replace every year or so) you’d probably be pretty happy until someone showed you how to get several free sports cars.

    That was great! I usually call Internet Explorer by another name… Internet Exploder!

    IE9 takes forever to load my home page. Have switched to Firefox as my default browser. Used IE for over 3 years but now I don’t use it at all.

    you can actually get IE on a mac…dunno who would want to though. And that thing with 500 error messages has never happened to me…still think it sucks though
