Poor Internet explorer, it just wants to be loved.

#8 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

I converted my parents to Firefox. They wont use Chrome though.

#9 Posted by SexualBubblegumX (542 posts) -

Show them Opera. It's rather nice yet under-rated.

IE 9 isn't as bad as previous versions, if you don't have another web browser you can use it without punching your monitor. Still, Chrome or even Firefox is preferable to it.

#11 Posted by phrali (646 posts) -

srsly  i heard IE was bad but this is ridiculoouis, i thought it was jsut people hating MS but this is like th internet threw up on me

#12 Posted by Mike512 (210 posts) -

Yeah my mom uses IE too. It seems like the only people who use it are inexperienced internet users who don't know that there are 76 other browsers better than IE out there.

#13 Posted by Aus_azn (2224 posts) -

I migrated both of my parents to Firefox when IE7 came out. They've stuck with it ever since.

#14 Posted by HistoryInRust (6267 posts) -

IE 9 is basically Microsoft aping Chrome. But it's still the slowest browser you can use.

My mother still uses IE 9, and she'll call me over to the house to have a look at her computer because it's so slow she thinks there's something wrong with it. In point of fact, it's just a shitty web-browser. Chrome runs like a dream on her rig.

netscape navigator is gangsta 

#16 Posted by CrazyBagMan (834 posts) -

My mom switched to Chrome even before i did.

#17 Posted by Meteora (5787 posts) -

IE9 is pretty slow... though the previous versions were even worse.

#18 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

These IE forums are great.

Smash the computer, jump out the window, burn down the house. Only way to deal with IE is the SJB (Smash,Jump,Burn) strategy.

I carry a portable boot of Chrome on my flashdrive so I can use it on any computer I have to go on. Easily the best thing I have used my flashdrive for.

My dad still uses IE. He doesnt understand why he'd need to change browser, no matter what I tell him.

#30 Posted by Subject2Change (2966 posts) -

My aunt uses AOL browser and IE browser. I told her numerous times to stop and even installed Firefox for her. She says they work fine and blah blah blah. So I just left it as is, didn't want to argue. I swear to god though I better not be back over there to fix a virus anytime soon...

#31 Posted by Extreme_Popcorn (842 posts) -

I have a friend who refuses to change from IE but she also refuses to ever close a window so she has around 50 different tabs open all the time. I tried to explain the concept of bookmarks to her but she had none of it.

The people described within these pages sound suspiciously much like every client I ever had.

Do they also use two sticks to make fire? Be a good son. Tell them 'NO! FIRE BAD! FIRE BURN!" 
Then install chrome on their computer.

Internet Explorer is comparatively a very bad browser but is it really that horrible to have to use it? I mean it's just a substandard internet browser, it's not like your computer's on fire.

Ew, Internet Explorer. All of my school's laptops has that has the default browser and it constantly freezes up and crashes on all the computers. I actually started installing Chrome on them every time we used them even though we weren't supposed to.

#38 Posted by cap123 (2477 posts) -

Don't you just hate when that happens?

#42 Posted by Nictel (2364 posts) -

Ask them if they experience problems, tell them you can fix it: Install Firefox/Chrome.

I once installed a better web browser on a work computer, almost got fired.

Yep, I learned my lesson.

Don't fuck with something that's not yours.

#45 Posted by Daveyo520 (6651 posts) -

When setting up my sisters new laptop I just got rid of the IE icons and put Chrome in it's place so she uses that. I would do it on my family's computer but my dad is finicky. 

#46 Posted by FiestaUnicorn (1577 posts) -

Maybe if you're visiting your parents there are more important things than worrying about their web browser. 
#47 Edited by pornstorestiffi (4908 posts) -

Put Firefox on my parents laptop years ago, then later put Chrome on. Did the same thing on my wife's computer.

#48 Posted by Shuborno (938 posts) -

IE9 is fine.

I still much prefer Chrome, but I'd use IE9 over Firefox.

#49 Posted by Belonpopo (1823 posts) -

My mom uses IE, Dad uses Chrome, brother uses Chrome, I use Mozilla. Same computer.

#50 Edited by Zacagawea (1577 posts) -

I don't understand how a company like Microsoft can even produce something like IE. They have enough money to do anything and could hire as many people as they need to actually make the browser worth using. I do like the look of IE 9 though, but the rest of it is still shit
