Has Internet Explorer Become a Tool to Download Google Chrome Or Mozilla FireFox?

TechFlashed : IE 9 is much more modern than IE8 , IE is evolving in right direction but still it cannot be called a modern web browser as it lags behind in many important areas.Internet Explorer has been holding down developers in creating awesome design which can really make the web more beautiful. (Browsers, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Software, Web)

What would I do without IE? Need to download that firefox somehow.
AgentWhite  +   480d ago
Yeah , Exactly that why its definition should change, The Latest Version IE9 -They somehow tried to copy chrome but at the back-end working is still the same .
Longest I used IE is about 2 mins after fresh Windows install.

Used windows 8 for 25 days though! Typing on win7 right now.

What do you mean "has it become"? It's been that way for years.

Conisdering that IE is the most used browser by far... I'd say no

"Most used"??? Doubt it kid.

As of mid April 2012 and back, it was at the top of the browser market share list. Not a surprising fact given how many corporations either have it installed and are too lazy to install another default browser or force it as the only option for control management purposes.

Edit - corrected the removal point.

Remove IE? IMPOSSIBRU!

@Silent - LOOOOL! My bad. Meant to say they're too lazy to set another browser as default.
Horny Melon  +   480d ago
Yeah pretty much. When doing a fresh OS install Internet explorer is used just long enough to install firefox and then never opened again.
AgentWhite  +   480d ago
Lol , Exactly . Microsoft needs to think on it.

Obvious article is obvious.

Developers hate Internet Explorer Too . lol
there is no one out there loving IE , What are the IE developers doing. They have a awesome change to make IE a huge platform for Microsoft as it comes integrated in windows.Still they come with a trash update which reaches only a minor audience because of the Update process if from windows updates.

MS & Apple need to merge their OS , can you imagine the blow it would deal to the industry. picture the 2 R&D teams working together, MS pc shares + the Apple share + followers. Possibilities are endless. plus them other os would curl up die, go broke ,disappear . would love to see this happen love both OS.JMT

No. I use IE to download Firefox, set that as my default, then use Firefox to download Chrome as a backup browser ;P
weap0nx  +   479d ago
Simple yes cause IE sucks
indubitably  +   479d ago
I really don't understand why people still say that IE sucks, the only thing I feel chrome has on it anymore is how well having 1 profile through different computers works. IE9 definitely starts up and browses faster on my more powerful computers. On the low end computer I have tried them on (still running win8) chrome couldn't even run youtube smoothly, IE did it without a problem. In the first case I can see consistency issues or the lack of personalization to cause you to go with chrome, but it isn't even an option for some people.
