What I’ve learned about IE


The IE post that I put up yesterday has generated a bit of discussion.


Bruce Morgan from the IE team made a comment and emailed me to let me know that IE is indeed not free as one comment noted. My mistake – I’m better educated now.


I remember in the old days when IE was young – there was a version for HP-UX and Power PC.  That is no longer the case though and to use IE today requires a Windows licence.


So I’ve learned that IE is not free.


I have also learned how little I know about web development.  It’s been years since I’ve done serious web development, and when I’ve done stuff lately its been in Visual Studio which takes care of much of the underlying bits for you (as long as you are keeping it simple – which I have been).


If you’ve posted comments, on it, your feedback has got the attention of myself, plus (more importantly) Bruce and his team.

    Hi Darryl. See, I do read your blog now and again.

    As you know, I have used FF for several years now and the tabbed browsing really does kick IE out of the park. Speed, I would say about the same. Rendering, bad at times (e.g. compare this page in IE and FF: http://www.christian-news.info/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=101&Itemid=92).

    I’m looking forward to seeing IE7 with tabs and RSS (which would be great).

    FF plugins like Linky are really good.

    See ya.

    I should have said IE rendering is bad at times (bullets missing on my page). Even your webpage where I am typing this is badly designed as the window I am typing this into is too small to read all my text as I type it. Grrrrrrr.
