It’s in French, but here’s
In any case, here are those reasons translated into English, with the help of the Google Translator and my French A-level (feel free to correct me if I get any of these wrong):
- Internet Explorer is integrated with Windows XP so you can surf the internet without having to decide which browser to use.
- Internet Explorer is accessible for everyone.
- IE can display all web pages – not all of them work in Firefox.
- IE requires hardly any extensions, whereas Firefox has a plethora.
- IE does not ship with tabs, but they can be added if you wish.
- IE does not have an RSS reader, which is a fad. You can just visit the site every day if you need to.
- IE is less secure than Firefox, but patches are released regularly.
- IE is closely linked to Windows.
- IE does not pass the Acid2 test like Safari does.
- You need to use IE to access Windows Update – even though Microsoft released a Firefox plugin for Windows Genuine Advantage, they will never open Windows Update to Firefox.
- IE doesn’t crash when visiting online banking sites, Firefox does.
- IE7 will adopt the standards of 2006 and include innovations of Microsoft and others, such as RSS, SSL3 and better security.
- IE does not respect W3C standards in their entirity.
- IE is the ‘de-facto’ standard that developers work to.
There you go. Pretty lame reasons, in my opinion, and some of them are reasons not to use IE as far as I’m concerned.
