IE will remain king until Windows dies a death. It is the internet for a huge number of people. The same kind of people who google 'facebook' to get to their facebook page

As one of the biggest tech companies on the planet Microsoft or Internet Explorer are going nowhere, of course it can bounce back

IE is still the most used browser according to stats provided by posters in this thread.
Where do you get your info from?

Ah I'm happy enough with IE. I used Mozilla for a long time but I never found it significantly better....

Eh... same can be said for Safari on Macs...

Anyhow, in my opinion all browsers I've used are shíte. Only use Firefox because it's not as shíte as the others.

In October 2011 IE dropped below 50% in the Marketshare of Combined Internet Browsers

I use whichever browser is the best, wouldnt be a fanboy as such, so if its better I would go back.

Been using Firefox for a long time now, Don't really like Chrome, Java applets used to crash a lot on it, not sure if thats fixed

I guess it's like someone with a basic phone. Some people just want to make calls and text. They don't need or want a Smart Phone crammed with apps.

IE is like the basic phone. Just good for checking web mail and checking the newsites.

I moved to win 7 I found chrome freezing and crashing and I moved to IE9 - it's much more stable.
I don't understand people saying chrome or firefox is so much better, is it like a fashion thing? Is it cool to hate IE?
