Internet Explorer With the release of Internet Explorer's first beta upon is, it's a good time to look back upon the history of Microsoft's web browser. As it turns out, Internet Explorer turns 15 today, with the first version released August 16, 1995. Pretty turbulent history, there.

Okay. Mod me down for a personal preference based on my experiences with WikiPedia.

Here's a good article to read about a college barring references from WikiPedia and their reasoning:

The moderation system on here doesn't allow for people who have already commented to cast moderation on other comments within that thread.

So in short, I couldn't have modded you if I wanted to (which personally I didn't).

To be honest, I don't really care. I've been there, done that, got my qualifications and have since been working in IT for a number of years (In fact, when I was college Wikipedia didn't even exist, so I'm fully versed in academic publications). So I have no reason what-so-ever to prove my point and nor will I waste my time finding a source that has been approved by top Universities.

The Wikipedia link was just a 30 second job, posted incase people wanted further reading. The knowledge I posted was from my own personal experience. I've got no need to provide a reference but I chose to because I thought some people might be grateful for it. Little did I realise the futilely of such efforts in the face of nitpickers like yourself.

So in the future, I'll be sure to leave out the links for further reading and let you do your own fraking Googling.

Sorry if this sounds harsh, but I really don't see why it should matter when the subject in question was 1 sodding HTML tag that isn't even used any more.

You seem to have taken extreme offense when none was ever intended.
