    Internet Explorer to be Renamed

    Take the shame: Microsofties ADMIT to playing Internet Explorer name-change game

    So, what should it be called? A cop out ands simply shorten it to 'IE' or something random yet connected like 'Tortoise'?
    Ideas?

    How about:
    NotWebkit - which is basically every other browser now, just another monoculture that the devs are jumping on, another option would be
    Unsupported - which it is now as all the precious crayon toating web 'designers' only dev for webkit.

    IE has its problems but it is reasonable and actually runs without causing a stack of problems on a managed network unlike certain other alternatives. We have already seen chrome split off its webkit implementation due to all the cruft but it will probably have to maintain a heavy compatibility layer to deal with all the webkit specific behaviour. Give it a couple of years and it will be guilty of all the same things people go off about Windows and IE for due to having to support the behaviour and quirks of all the older webkit engines as well as any new features.

    @Dos_Box. Do you know something we don't? The title of this thread indicates you have some insider info.

    Personally I find IE to be the best option still on Windows Domains. I had switched to Google Chrome but in a number of instances after recent upgrades found that it's started to inexplicably block sites.
