I rarely swear on my blog, but I’ve just got to get this off my chest. A majority of Windows users hitting my site use Internet Explorer. Let me say unequivocally that the Internet Explorer browser is pure @#$%!!! I hate it with a passion. It doesn’t play by the rules of the world wide web‘s standards! And I’m just not going to bother spending the time to figure out what rules they do play by! As a result, my blog looks like a train wreck in IE.
Almost 40% of my web traffic uses Internet Explorer. Of that group, 71% use IE7, 19% use IE6 (I can’t even imagine that!), and 10% are using IE8. I haven’t checked out IE8 to see if it plays better by the rules or not. [Update: IE8 renders my blog correctly!]
The good news is that almost 54% of my web traffic uses a better browser!
