It is good to see articles like this, discussing recent developments of the web browser. In other news, Internet Explorer being killed off is the happiest news I have heard this year.

Internet explorer isn't as bad as it used to be. Heck it even got a built in ad blocker (sadly not on mobile).

I agree. It is worse. Having had to wrangle with it for the last two months I am ready to quit rather than have to work with it. Absolute nightmare.

IE is mandatory at work, which means that (A) a lots of good sites/tools are totally unusable on the corporate machine ( is one of them. Love Trello and need it at work), and (B) I am stuck with its absolutely awful UI choices. We're using 9 or 10 (can't be arsed to look it up) and it's clear that was a version that was desperately chasing the sleekness of Chrome, but with a development team of not-awfully talented individuals. It really is terrible to use. Simple things like showing bookmarks are not easy, and it has huge rendering errors. I'm glad they are giving up on it - it's the software equivalent of 'design by committee.'

Corporate like it as the feature controls are extensive and easy to enforce. IE11 is another level of terrible over IE10.
