The Browser War

May 20, 2008

I’ve picked up a reputation at my library as a Microsoft naysayer, particularly when it comes to Internet Explorer.  Between Microsoft’s monopolistic practices with the way they push it and the fact that it doesn’t work with HTML (why aren’t more people bothered by that?) I just hate the thing.  Which is why I was so happy to see Brian Herzog’s write up on his library’s total migration to Firefox.  And they get bonus points from me for installing the IE tab add-on that lets Firefox behave as if it was IE temporarily so you can still use it with sites designed for its competitor.  Well done.
