    he presents a valid point, just a pity that Internet Explorer failed at all its "innovation"

    No. The only only people that use IE are people that don't know anything about computers and think IE is the internet. Google Chrome FTW. (and soon ChromeOS [​IMG])

    If you are on Windows you're using IE if you like it or not.

    Fixed. You can't get rid of it, but you just choose not to use it.

    I can use Internet Explorer in Firefox. Firefox is safer and a lot funnier with all the fun addons it has. Addons make Mozilla Firefox the best. Google is even better than Internet Explorer. Microsoft should just include Mozilla Firefox with Windows 8 in 2012.

    It's true. I'll be like "Oh, I use Firefox at home" and people will be like "What is that?" Then they get the total epiphany that Internet Explorer is not in fact the internet, just a means of browsing it.

    I used IE for a while and then I eventually started using Firefox. Firefox + AdBlock Plus is all I really need to be satisfied.

    IE8 is what I'm using now. I like how I don't ave to reload a page like 20 times just for it to download. Thats probably just with me.

    Firefox has AdBlock Plus, Download Helper and Firebug. (These are the only addons I have installed anyway, there are more on my dad's computer.)
