Internet Explorer Yes, yes, yes - that's what you get for releasing Internet Explorer 9 in the middle of the night, Microsoft! A post on OSNews that's late! I'm sure that'll teach you. Anywho, as you may have noticed, Microsoft is back in the browser game - Internet Explorer 9 has been released.

Pretty much all computers come with Win 7 installed so expect IE9 uptake to be pretty good.


But how long will that take? XP is still the #1 operating system. What needs to happen is for a major site like youtube to require a modern browser. But no one wants to lose that much traffic so everyone will just keep using Flash for years.

Until Firefox came out every other browser was complete shit. Opera was alright, Netscape/Mozilla was terrible. IE6 was the best of breed at the time.


That's BS, Opera was way better than IE6. The mistake they made was charging for the browser. The name was never that good either.

But nobody ever gives a shit about Opera ... I don't get any traffic from Opera ... in fact the only traffic I get from opera is me checking to make sure it works in Opera.

Also I get tired with nerds nitpicking ... I was pretty much right ... not 110% right ... but accurate enough ... It is tiresome.
