Internet Explorer – Microsoft-made browser existence would be excluded more by this addon: IE Tab for Firefox and IE tab for Google Chrome. How could not? Without those addon, IE already opened rare by majority of internet user, moreover, after the addon existed.
Why Internet Explorer is getting excluded?
Majority of Internet Explorer user left this browser because it is so slow, complicated and there are too many security popup, many limitation, also not up to date with latest technology. Some website display with latest technology can be messed up if opened by Internet Explorer. web developer also “pissed off” with this browser, because it was so difficult for them to conform web they designed with IE technology.
Why Internet Explorer is still needed?
Eventhough its existence is getting excluded, the IE existence is still needed because:
– There are still some website which can be opened normally using IE, such as Outlook Web Access & Sharepoint which its features worked well in IE.
– To run ActiveX Controls which is IE technology
– for web development needs, such as cross browser testing
