Internet Explorer As it turns out, Google's idea of silently and automatically updating web browsers for security's sake is actually a pretty darn good idea - Chrome is pretty much always up-to-date. Microsoft agrees with this, and has announced it's going to automatically update Internet Explorer on Windows XP, Vista and 7.

I have a car that only turns left. So if you only turn right, you will largely be fine.

IE<8 has tens of more-or less common rendering bugs that. The scope of their fsckups is much broader than just positioning.

The car analogy ... really?

Most of the rendering bugs are pretty easy to code around and are well documented by now.

All browsers have bugs, IE7 is 5 or 6 years old now? If I compared it to Firefox 1.5 or 2, I know that both these browsers have problems with things like inline-block just as IE7 does.

I'd rather know what those bugs are, then have something like Firefox that has new and interesting problems every 6 weeks.
