Have you noticed my sidebar link stream lately? Are you getting the message? Do you know what to do?
IE-users, I don’t hate you, but thus far, Internet Explorer has held back the rest of the web, and the effects of its flaws have snowballed in recent days. There has never been a more opportune time to switch to a web browsing client with better security, more frequently useful updates, closer compliance to web standards, and a non-monopolistic outlook on the web and its users. I know a lot of you are “used to IE,” and that switching takes time and effort. It’ll take a day or two to acclimatize to a new browser, but once you’re done, you’ll be free of many hidden security traps and limp standards support, and it’ll be a brighter, clearer path ahead, for you and for the rest of the web.
(Oh, while you’re at it, you should also dump Outlook Express, delete Windows, and install a stable Linux distro. Or buy a Mac. Simple, right?)
