Windows 7: IE Loses More Market Share

MS was part of the committee that set and adopted the standards - then MS did not adhere to the standards they endorsed.

For me, the only reason to ever use IE is because that some web designers apparently do not fully understand web standards, and their websites are not compatible with other browsers. Fortunately, this is becoming less and less common, but I still have to resort to IE on occasion, depending on the website and what I'm trying to accomplish.

In the past, this fact has created a perspective that IE was superior to other browsers, when in fact, exactly the opposite was true. Judging by the rate of improvement in IE, it use will continue a gradual decline in popularity. For this to be otherwise, it shall need to make radical changes in how it deals with the internet. If this somehow occurs, and places all browsers on a more level playing field, then consumer choices could then be more subjective.

Coral IE Tab in FF will solve that problem for you.

I really don't know what that is, because I rarely use FF. I assume that is something like I use in Opera, in that I have a button on the toolbar to open either IE or FF to the same page I have opened in Opera.

It causes FF to open a webpage using the IE rendering engine. Very convenient.

If you look at the Platform Preview, it seems it's gonna be more compliant with current standards. If IE9 can deliver everything that's in the Platform Preview, it can be a game changer. IE9's JavaScript engine speed will be on par with Chrome's (faster than FireFox), has support for HTML5 and will able to render graphics on web pages extremely faster since it takes advantage of hardware GPU. That's all assuming Microsoft promises what was shown in the Platform Preview.
