Microsoft Nails it with Tongue-in-Cheek Internet Explorer Video

Microsoft Nails it with Tongue-in-Cheek Internet Explorer Video

Do you know this guy? Does he live in your mirror, perhaps?

Years ago, Internet Explorer became the Nickelback of web browsers, the one everyone loved to hate (and for good reason). There was a time when stellar alternatives to IE sprung up in the form of Firefox and Google’s Chome browser, and anyone still using Microsoft’s crummy old browser was considered a luddite or worse.

Wisecracking haters took every opportunity to take a shot at IE in forums, comments sections, and so on.

To Microsoft’s credit, the company hasn’t been afraid to admit past mistakes while working hard to rebuild trust in its products, and this video is a perfect illustration that at least they understand there's a bit of catching up to do.



You got us, Internet Explorer team; nice one.

I noticed that the kid's browser is pretty damned fast. I wonder which one he's using?

You know it's a PR video when all they do is virtual name-calling of people that dislike IE.  They don't mention any real facts, such as that it has a consistent track record for the most security vulnerabilities, performs the worst, and is the least HTML5 compliant of all the browsers.  Check it out for yourself:  http://html5test.com/results/desktop.html
