Bye Bye Internet Explorer

If you happen to be one of "those people" using Internet Explorer -despite my previous direct and indirect messages to raise awareness amongst my network- I feel compelled to keep reminding you to stop and get your web life on the right track.

"Friends don't let friends use Internet Explorer. And neither should acquaintances. Educate others about moving off of Internet Explorer."

So I removed 2 characters from Microsoft's quotation... since this is how it SHOULD be and this is what millions of designers and developers would tell you!

Stop using Internet Explorer and get something decent! Decent as in a browser or an application that is secure, supports web standards and keeps up with emerging technologies and trends. In random order and based on your own preferences, you may choose Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Opera.


So what are you waiting for?!

It's not only about aesthetics :) .. but about security, performance and standards, as well as trends =D

Chrome is a standard compliant browser, and when sites crash, it's because the people of made the site made it for IE only... they have a big L on their foreheads! :P
