Do you miss Internet Explorer?

Asked by Nevada83 (907points) 3 weeks ago

I do. I wish I could go back in time to when it was the most-used browser there is. I was looking at all 11 major versions of it and I started crying.

Uh sorry for your loss, but for myself nope I used to call it Internet exploder.

I prefer it to it’s replacement, MS Edge. But that’s not saying much.

(We called it Deplorer, and Exploder.)

It only ever existed to download Firefox.

My most heartfelt sympathies for your loss!!! I NEVER liked IE & I stopped using it around 07–08 & never looked back. Edge doesn’t excite me either.

Definitely not. I’ll spit on its grave!

Nope. Pretty bad browser experience that was basically forced on the public for too long.

Not even a little. Netscape rules!!!

I’ve used FIrefox since 2005, now on my second Macbook Pro.

Yes, I greatly miss Internet Explorer. This may, however, be because I’m so pitifully lame with technology. IE worked for me; thus, I knew and loved it.

Explorer was the initial bootloader for Chrome and/or Firefox

I miss the era in which we all used Internet Explorer, because nostalgia is a potent drug, but reality intrudes too much for me to pretend it had a better user experience than everything that came after.

Oh no! Not at all.

I mean, you can still run explorer. Also, you can put edge into “explorer mode” just by clicking the little “e” icon in the top right of the screen
