Internet Explorer, why!?

Hello everyone,

Currently IE got on my nerves so much that I’ve decided to share my resentment with everybody. For starters, have you (IE users) ever thought about how much time do programmers waste adapting their page also on IE? Well, really much I have to say! If you were allowed to use a computer then at least have some respect for it not polluting it with this browser.

Even though it is really difficult to estimate the percentage of browsers usage, however, according to the statistics and many theories IE users take about 10-40%, the rest part has of course Mozilla FireFox and another small percentages belongs to Opera, Safari, Chrome, etc. Also I’ve noticed that the more serious the page is the bigger percentage of FireFox users (if comparing with IE) is. Many pages block IE users because they don’t care about them. Nevertheless, WOW! To 40%?… You have got to be kidding me…We live in modern times and technologies (which aren’t maintained by IE) are developing at a fast pace. Programers try to create programmes so that you stupid IE users could use them, so have at least some sence and update your software.

I wish all users spread Mozilla FireFox and page programmers had this function:
// index.php

function get_browser_($user_agent)
$browsers = array (
‘IE6’ => ‘(MSIE 6.[0-9]+)’,
‘IE5’ => ‘(MSIE 5.[0-9]+)’,
‘IE4’ => ‘(MSIE 4.[0-9]+)’,

foreach($browsers as $browser=>$pattern)
return $browser;

return ;

$browser = get_browser_($_SERVER[‘HTTP_USER_AGENT’]);


// using_ie.php

<strong>Internet Explorer 4/5/6 WILL NOT BE TOLERATED IN THIS PAGE.</strong>

Waiting for better times!

Don’t forget –

    Deja turiu nuliūdinti, IE vartojimas siekia ~70% (
    Man asmeniškai “IE vs FF” tipo diskusijos nepatinka. Čia maždaug: “Pabėkit iš Internet Explorer monopolijos, pereikit į FireFox monopoliją!”. Tap, IE nėra tobulas, bet gal nereikėtų sakyti, kad visi naudojantys IE yra lopai. Geriau tikslo siekti kitais būdais, kaip kad “Spread Firefox” ar pan.
    Beje, auksinė verslo taisyklė: klientas visada teisus 🙂

    Na manau daug procentų galima atmesti vien kurie turi IE ir jį panaudoja kartą per savaitę, arba puslapių programuotojai kurie testuoja ant IE. Na sutinku, kad aš čia per karštai pasipiktinau, bet visumoje IE tikrai blogis.

    Hey, love the site! Keep it up! I will be difinatley be coming back in the near future =)

  8. I like that :), (or rather, those bits I could easily read). I am color blind (protanopia in my case). I mostly use Opera browser (no idea if that changes anything), and a great deal of your web page is a bit of a strain on my eyes. I know that it is not your problem really, nonetheless it would be kind if you could bear in mind color blind surfers whilst doing your next site design.
