    STOP IE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Discussion started by Mainter - Dec 13, 2005

    StopIE - Rid the web of Internet Explorer

    Welcome to StopIE.com. We are dedicated to the removal of Internet Explorer as the most common browser on the web. There are many reasons for this.
    Internet Explorer's Main Problems

    There are countless bugs in Internet Explorer, but here are the main reasons to choose a free alternative.

    * Prone to viruses and worms
    * Renders pages incorrectly. Web designers then need to spend extra time working so that pages work in Internet Explorer. This puts costs up, and slows the web down.
    * Doesn't let people resize certain text sizes. This means those with poor sight cannot read small text on many sites.
    * Far slower program than other web browsers
    * Far larger program than other web browsers
    * Isn't as user-centric as other web browsers. It lacks many handy features such as tabbed browsing and integrated search
    * Doesn't support PNG images properly

    Alternatives to Internet Explorer

    Internet Explorer is the worst major browser. There are a number of free alternatives available. These alternatives are standards compliant, i.e. they conform to international standards. Internet Explorer is not standards compliant, and thus renders pages wrongly.

    On the alternatives to Internet Explorer page, we outline many superior competitors, all of which are free or have free versions. These are Mozilla Firefox, K-Meleon, Mozilla, Opera, Camino and Safari.
    Microsoft responding?

    Microsoft have announced 'IE7' will be available in the summer (Beta). Security fixes are expected, given MS' recent bad press in this area, but few expect Microsoft to fix web standards issues in Internet Explorer, or IE's accesibility problems.

    Some only expect a similar update to Service Pack 2 (which fixed a number of very serious vulnerabilities).

    Maybe some handy features will be adopted from alternative browsers, but no-one is holding their breath.
    Play your part - StopIE

    Change browser, encourage your friends and family to do the same. You may also consider helping to translate the site

    IE can't be that bad if its the most commonly used browser.
