To some of you who follow my blog, the title of this post may sound familiar. 2 years ago I posted with a similar title, only it was about ie8.
Microsoft PR dpt. has done it again. They’ve released a comparison chart, between their brand new IE9, and other browsers such as firefox and chrome.
And for one think it has to stop. Their comparison is full will half-truths and whole lies, and coming from a company that made web-developers suffer and scream in rage, it’s absurd.
IE9 is a better browser then all other IEs. It’s faster, more standard driven and all in all a decent browser. BUT (and it’s a big but) it’s not a modern browser and it’s not by far, better then Firefox or Chrome.
This recent post made me create this :
Yes it may sound whiny to some, but there’s no denial that somebody at Microsoft has failed to check all the fact before posting this.
