Yes, your close friend and (seemingly) greatest ally, Microsoft Internet Explorer is indeed quite likely the worst browser you could be using to look at the internet (of course this is a gross exageration, especially considering a recent experience I had with an ass old copy of Netscape Navigator). Without getting into the details of it, IE works in such a way that it makes the jobs of web-designers everywhere far more difficult than it has to be, failing to support functions, misrepresenting layouts etc.
also, it is owned by pure evil.
“But what can I do?” you might be asking. Well it’s your lucky day, because Mozilla has just released a brand new version of their amazing browser Firefox. It has all the obvious features of internet explorer, as well as a horde of new (if you’re using IE) and awesome things, such as tabbed browsing (an amazing way to organize your web wanderings), as well as totally functional integrated popup blocking.
Most importantly though, mozilla and Firefox are both open-source which means that I have a very good reason to convince you to use it, because, like every other human, I own the rights to it. Along with the free operating system Linux, Mozilla was created through the cooperation of a huge pool of programmers who donated their time to create something they could be proud of and give to their children. It’s electronic communism on a humongous and functioning scale, and you can take advantage of it even using the evils of Windows and MacOS.
Give it a chance and you’ll be hooked. I promise.
