Suddenly XP is too old. How 'bout IE6.
They rely on testing those new IE9 xhtml files in other browsers, 'coz of IE 6-8 downloading thing. And I still “blame” IE for me making friends with Tommy Olsson (hello Tommy, thanks again).http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=393445
So one more
You need, at least for the preview, Vista SP2 or 7. I believe that, just for a friggin’ browser, the price is too high. The others (FF, Op, Saf, Ch) don’t. So
So much bling for features a little browser does since a long time ago.
Who need’s IE9?
So my score for this lousy attempt from Microsoft is:
Way to go. Maybe tomorrow I’ll get an 18en wheeler just to get across the street for a coffee.
It’s so typical. They don’t see Google OS?
We need them to have better software (as in better then the one created in the past, that everyone is bumping on for years), if they expect us to buy extra for it. Now ppl have multiple options among browsers, and mature ones. What big companies will go the extra mile upgrading hardware just to get a semi software? For Microsoft big accounting numbers? Their still waiting for 7 SP1.
Maybe 7 is doing well, maybe it’s just smoke on the water. They need a reality check. Hope competition will give them one soon enough. They started doing now what others consider it history. So I’m sure they will fall behind again, even with this IE9.
