[News] [Rival] Microsoft's Browser is Rubbish Compared to Free Software

Hash: SHA1

Compute: A closer look at Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8

| That aside, IE8 is not a bad product. It's no Firefox, which remains my 
| favorite browser by far.

| Performance-wise I didn't notice much difference than IE7 but I confess I am 
| very comfortable with Firefox at home at this point. At work I use IE6 or IE7 
| almost all day and the move to IE8 at home really didn't mean any big changes 
| for me either in performance or having to think how to do anything 
| differently or rethink any menus or toolbars.

Microsoft IE8 Still Eats Firefox's Dust, Says Mossberg (MSFT)


With IE8, Microsoft Ignores One Third Of The Market

| But speed is really everything. Without speed, all the other features fall by
| the wayside. You can't enjoy a WebSlice (which is a slice of a Webpage that
| is constantly updated) if it takes forever to load. And if you look at
| Internet Explorer's market share, it has steadily been eroded over the past
| few years by its faster rivals Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Opera. We'll have
| to wait for new independent speed tests to see how IE8 stacks up, but speed
| does not appear to be its strong point.
| Microsoft is doing what it always does: focusing on its massive installed
| base of users and ignoring the rest. If you've already left IE for a speedier
| browser, IE8 is not going to bring you back, and Microsoft knows it. For
| instance, Internet Explorer long ago turned its back the Mac and IE8 will be
| no different. There will be no Mac version, even though Macs continue to gain
| market share against PCs.

| IE8 still trails the opposition by an awful amount; removing Opera from the
| comparison would leave IE8 at almost three times slower than its nearest
| competitor.
