M[C]S vs. IE8

MCS_IE8.jpg (137 KB)

Internet Explorer 8 has a little feature Microsoft calls “Suggested Sites” that is supposed to list other websites you might like based on what you are currently viewing. I tried it with M[C]S, and IE8 had no clue what to suggest. I guess it just goes to show that there\’s nothing at all like M[C]S on the entire web!

    1. Or you just don’t want to admit that IE sucks.

    2. @Sticky: I have NO PROBLEM admitting that IE sucks, but I still have to test it at work for compatibility with other applications (like Oracle, which REALLY sucks!) and our eTime program. IE is NOT what I use at home.

      Oh, and thanks for completely ignoring the actual content of the post and just attacking. This is what I’ve come to expect from about 1/2 of the M[C]S commenters.

    5. Never understood why MS has this habit of seeing whats cool and copying it but making it worse and eventually trying to force people to pay for it.

      I guess cause it worked a few times and is worth the gamble each other time they try.

    7. Yea IE8 sucks. Half the websites cause it to crash. So they say to use the “computability mode.” Why would they put in an extra step when you don’t have to do that with Safari, Firefox or Opera? I can surf all day on the later three with no problems, but IE8 just crashes all the time. Plus they display HTML tables incorrect. I would really like to kick Gates in the balls for this abortion of a web browser.

    8. @Drew: compatibility mode is a feature that should have been around for a log time. See, lazy web page developers are pretty fucking lazy and don’t do shit all day but work on their muscles. So when Microsoft bestows on us the latest and greatest browser, these web page programmers just sit on their lazy asses and don’t both to make sure their webpages look right.

      I have already had the beta for 6 months, and as soon as the release came out, several sites no longer required compatablitly mode. So, the answer is if you see the icon, then click it and chances are it will fix minor glitches on the web page.

      If there is no icon, then that means that the web page programmer for that was not a lazy ass person and actually went through and updated it.

      All in all, IE8 rocks, no windows 7 love though, we are stuck w/ a beta of IE8 specifically enhanced like its on steriods.

    9. @PaganPaul: I’ve never used suggested sites, but I’m guessing it pulls stuff from your cache or cookies. Now that you have set it or whatever, and go to several other blog oriented sites (?) more stuff should start popping up.

      didn’t chrome try this? but it sucked…

    10. @token2k6: That is some of the dumbest shit I’ve ever heard. So you are saying all web developers, including myself, have fucked up and broke all websites and we need to be thanking microsoft for creating this “compatibility mode” which fixes all the mistakes web developers made? What it is genius, is a way to view websites that screw with IE. Since MS is soooo good at marketing they called it compatibilty mode but in all honesty it should be called, “redundant fuck mode because we are too busy fixing shit we’ve fucked up for so long.”

    11. @token2k6: No douch, it doesn’t pull from your cookies or cache, it finds websites that are similar based on their meta description.

    12. @Drew: You’ve missed the point completely, much like your life…

      I said, that when a new browser comes out, support has to be added for that browser. all browsers have this, not juse IE8. So in the past, if a web page didn’t display correctly, you were just stuck with it until that companies lazy ass web manager updated the site.

      Now you have the option to have the browser automatically revert back to an older setting that was maybe compatable with IE 7. So now, they are letting lazy ass web programmers be even lazier b/c they can just say fuck it, I won’t do anything and people can use compatiblity mode. however, that is fail.

    13. Seems like everyone’s got a bug in their butt today. I’ve got friends starting crap over IM. It takes only 3 or 4 responses per post to start the flaming here. Random crap from random people all over the place.

    14. @PaganPaul: hehe I use eTime too ^_^ I have the IEtab add-on for Firefox that I use for stupid sites like that for work. I suppose that still counts as technically using IE in a roundabout way though. =P
