I was told that IE will soon be replaced . Because I have to test my websites on as many browsers as I can this was news to me so I went looking.

Spartan implies a trimmed-down version. Network gurus told me they can't use IE now becuase of the security restrictions. Something I found , but having said that Safari, Chrome had the same restriction, FireFox 34 did not.
Go figure

I haven't used IE on purpose in 12-14 years, and I have barely understood why so many did. I suppose because "it's just what was given to me with Windows." I know several intelligent people who have NEVER installed an additional program that wasn't there when they bought their computer. Oh well...bye, bye I.E. "I hardly knew Ye"

I am reading this right now in Opera 11.64, for various reasons. (All versions of Opera are still available.)

For various other situations I may use a version of Firefox(at least 4 years old) or PaleMoon or K-Meleon

http://www.palemoon.org/ (a clever fork of Firefox )

Pale Moon offers you a browsing experience in a browser completely built from its own, independently developed source with carefully selected features and optimizations to maximize the browser's speed*, stability and user experience, while maintaining compatibility with thousands of Firefox extensions many have come to love and rely on.

http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/

A fast, lightweight browser that does 92.9274% of what most people need.


There's no reason not to have more than one browser.

IE was too many headaches, so I gave it up many years ago--but not as many as Bill.

A few recent benchmark tests suggests it's no longer faster than Firefox. But there are certainly quite a few features of Firefox that most people won't use - like the development tools. I see he's just thrown the crash reporter overboard which seems a bit short sighted. Still, speed isn't everything, in fact unless you've got an old and feeble computer it hardly matters. I guess a lot of users really just prefer the old Firefox look.

I mostly use Firefox on an Android tablet these days.

I'll use this thread to mention that I recently added my mudcat quoting bookmarklet on my Mudcat Tools page. I use these tools in Firefox, and they also work in Chrome. But the quoting bookmarklet works in IE 11 - which surprised me a bit. They usually don't.

IE is the browser of choice for some tech folks, and it is the only way to see the full web version (vs "lite") of my office email. The Lite email is a pain in the backside, so I use IE to avoid that, and it is good for a couple of sites that if I use IE it really does block all of the spammy ads that would otherwise load. The rest of the time I use Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and SeaMonkey.

I use Conkeror, a version of Firefox that allows me to keep my hands on the keyboard most of the time. It has its bugs, but its heart is in the right place.
