Every time I use IE as a browser, my computer gets hung up or I can only see part of a website, or I get an error message. I'm just curious as to why it even still exists.
It did what microsoft does best. It delivered well enough to get the bills paid. But didnot allow much room for progress. Firefox, chrome and even safari outperform it in nearly every way. I like microsoft for one thing. Windows XP and that is where it stops for most.
So, what has kept you so devotedly using a product that doesn't seem to be working for you?
Whenever I see people still using IE, I just laugh. I saw a commercial a few months ago about an upgraded IE, but it's way too late. There's no way it'll be able to catch up. I'm surprised they're still trying.
On all windows computers it's the default browser... so 30% of the ppl still use it... therefore it still makes a lot of money. (I asked my husband, I had no idea. lol)
There is something wrong with your system, not necessarily something intrinsically wrong with IE.
Which version are you running?
I don't personally use it, but to put it bluntly, there is very little difference between it and it's counterparts, at least in terms of end-user experience.
I have IE and FireFox on my Laptop and it has never occurred to me to try using IE for a search... it takes forever to open.
I posit again, it is a system issue, or a buggered up IE configuration.
Here is a quick video I made, opening firefox first and googling hubpages, then the same for IE.
Could you really tell a difference?

For anyone who upgraded to Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11 came with it and you may have noticed that you can enter links in your hubs through this browser.It still works in Firefox 25, but just a heads up!

Just noticed that the facebook like button is not showing in Firefox, although it shows up fine in Chrome when I looked.

I've read lots of instructional stuff about these, but I've pretty much given up on trying to put them on my hubs because I just don't understand aspects of these tools. What I'd like to know is: Can I survive on...

I have used all of these and found firefox good, but not as chrome, IE is losing its position. One problem I faced with chrome is, it crashes after sometime...Which one is best ?
