I was analyzing my Woopra site statistics over the past month, and much to my satisfaction, only 30.18% of my viewers use a flavor of Internet Explorer (IE). This is music to my ears! In fact, the Worldwide Web Consortium data shows that Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Opera have all been picking up steam across the Internet. 🙂 Thanks to all of you who have replaced IE with one of the latter options!
So why am I so anti-IE? Because it’s the worst freakin’ browser from a developer’s standpoint, from an optimization standpoint, from a security standpoint, from an extensibility standpoint… heh, I’ll stop there before I say something mean. 😉
Please let me know if you need more reasons, have questions regarding what the transition to a new browser will mean for your bookmarks/favorite sites, which browsers I recommend for each operating system (Windows, Mac, Linux), etc.
Hope to see more of you finally make the switch!
