I hate IE 8!

If you have been following my reviews you'd have at least notice I don't have a penchant for bad reviews. Generally, I don't believe in bad mouthing anyone or anything & I've never done so on Microsoft products. But this is a first & hopefully, the last, if not the 2nd last!

IE 6 works fine & IE 7 not much of an improvement. But IE 8 is horrendous. Download it at your own risk!!! Take my word for it or you'll regret your life!!! Miserable life after downloading it! I've since switched to Google Chrome and Firefox. As far as I'm concerned to make such a mistake is a no-no for Microsoft! I've a lot of problem with my other web building softwares after IE8 has been installed. I don't know computer enough to know why. I only know that I'll tell every single soul I've come across not to install IE8!!!

Well, for your info, I'm not the only one who hates IE8. I've colleagues who have a lot of problem with their sites since IE8 was installed on their computers. So, you can be rest assured, I'm not the only one. Vista was bad enough but IE8 is the killer for Microsoft!

So, be forewarned, install at your own risk!!!

P.S. For some reasons, with IE8, I've a feeling I'm being stalked! The program is leaving "things" in my computer which I do not know about or want to. Am I being monitored or what?!?!?!

Really? I haven't used IE for a long long time. May be Microsoft has cleaned up the bugs!

what browser are you currently using now?

Chrome, of course! I'm a google fan, why do you think I even bother to write about them? Coz I want them to stay in business! ;-)

I will definitely keep your criticism in mind. Thanks for the heads up!

I'm no expert on computer but with IE8, I kept getting alerts from my firewall and that's annoying to say the least. IE8 has similar functions as Google Chrome but Chrome is a lot user friendly and less irritating! If you are happy with your current version of IE, it's best not to upgrade. Once upgraded, I don't think there's an option to switch it back!

"Better than 6" isn't good enough.
