Just set MSN as the default browser... and mbunny's right... MSN is worse than IE... its all bloat, theres too much crap and it takes up browsing room.... plus, if you removed MSN messenger, MSN won't work.
ok ya you don't want to remove ie. i have done it. and it ****** my system up nice. the thing with ie is that its built into windows. its part of the os. wait till the service pack comes out. i think you might be able to uninstall it then. oh, and i belive msn uses the same engine as ie. so they are basicly the same thing
I'm pretty sure you could out design me but what web designers fail to understand is that you are isolating linux users and non-IE using people. When you make a website you should consider using the W3C standard rather than using the IE Sub-standard.
Come on people! What is so bad about IE? It has everything a backbone browser should have (back, forward, stop, refresh...etc). Just because another browser has a prettier picture for the toolbar, does that make it better? I admit that some browsers have "tabs", but I believe IE is going to implement that in a later version. If you don't like IE because you have problems with using a M$ product or you think it is "cool" to not like it, you have some other issues to iron out. If you don't like IE because of the interface, fine, then use another browser but don't complain when you cannot see a webpage. IE has become the standard for most internet users so it is time for everyone to crack down and just use it or don't expect to get as much from the web.
I agree on this one. (Not that Many agree with catch on anything heheh) I was a Web designer Until the recession then i had to go back to hard labor to make money.
So many web designers don't even properly test their site let alone make it compatable For other browsers. When i was in buisness i always made the sites i built compatable to 3 browsers. Linux, IE, & Netscape unless the customer said otherwise. If you look at major site statistics those are the 3 most common used browsers. I remember IE Being 88% Netscape was 9% Linux was only 2% and others were at 1%. I explained to my customers that I could make it IE only if they requested it but out of 100 sales they could lose 11 sales without being compatable. Sometimes it limited certain functionallity to a site (Especially with linux) but we made browser redirects for the pages that had this problem (Shopping carts were the biggest headache on this point linux hates ASP).
Anyway It is a matter of those that think they are professional web designers and those that are professionals...
