Internet Explorer must die

Internet Explorer must die! I love the title of this article. Internet Explorer first roared onto the market, to battle Netscape Navigator, in 1995 (over 19 years ago). Since then, Internet Explorer has been plagued by numerous security, compatibility, and usability issues, making it one of the most despised applications by security experts.

I have used Internet Explorer minimally (only required to to access certain SharePoint sites, within company’s intranet). I whole-heartedly agree, that Internet Explorer should be placed in the scrap-heap, and either re-done, or preferably removed, and let the Internet Explorer team focus on writing plug-ins for Chrome and Firefox.

From the article:

The browser has become synonymous with bugs, security problems and outdated technology. Even as Internet Explorer has improved dramatically in recent years, it continues to lose serious ground to rival browsers.

Once the most-used Web browser, Internet Explorer had been on a steady downward trajectory for years. Its share of the browser market fell below the 50% threshold in 2010 and sank below 20% in October, according to browser usage tracker StatCounter.Google’s (GOOGL, Tech30) Chrome is currently the browser leader, commanding a 48% share of the market.
