I really wonder why people still use IE(Internet Explorer) to browse the web. I find it really amazing! With web browser like Firefox freely available, why is everyone stuck with that disgusting IE?
Let me tell you a story that led me to blog this article.
I created a blog recently at wordpress.com(which you are viewing at the moment). I was surfing through the themes available for my blog then my eyes got stuck in a theme called “Sapphire”(it is my current theme). The theme was really nice. I customized the page to suit my needs. I viewed my blog and was very happy with how the blog looked. Then, I thought of viewing it through Internet Explorer. I opened the Internet Explorer, typed my blog address in the address bar and hit enter. The first thing I noticed was it took really long time to load my page, which opened in a jiffy in Firefox. After the whole page loaded, I was shocked to see my page look so ugly. The layout was changed completely and it looked really shabby.
As many of my viewers would be using Internet Explorer, I thought I would change the theme. I changed my theme and tested it in Internet Explorer. But, the theme didn’t work good as well. I tried some other themes but all my work was in vain. None of the good-looking themes worked in Internet Explorer.
I was really annoyed with this, so finally I decided to set “Sapphire”(the theme that I chose first) as my theme for the blog and suggest my viewers to use Firefox instead of Internet Explorer.
