In an invite sent to the media, Microsoft hinted at the collaboration with the Gorillaz. "Join us for the unveiling and celebration of Internet Explorer 9 beta where one of the world's most innovative animated bands will be showcasing Internet Explorer 9."

    A new era for the world wide web.. Sounds like Reagan. Sounds like the New Era potato chip factory we lived near in the 50s; maybe the precursor to all chip factories? One can dream.

    Well with less than 30% market share they gotta stop monkeying around!
  5. LOL, I agree with TomSEA. This is indeed pretty lame.

    And what's all the fuss with IE9 if it is still the worst browser of them all? It's not like they are gonna make much of a difference.

    Here's to hoping that Microsoft does release an innovative and new browsing experience. It's in everyone's best interest for them to do so, whether you plan to use the browser or not.
  7. To all the ie haters talkiin outta their necks, I welcome and am looking forward to this. Problems with ie? I've never had any so perhaps it's user error. I've tried all the rest and imo they are inferior to ie. That is all. lol
  8. Well to be honest this will be interesting. If Microsoft can redeem themselves grats if not oh well. I use firefox and ie depends on my mood what I am doing.

    One thing to note though hackers will target ie just because it has largest share of market, if another browser has larger share then hackers will go after it and ppl will complain about browser thats has largest market share just like they are about ie these days.
  9. I'd never use a browser without an ad blocker. So I doubt I would ever use Internet Explorer, I cant imagine Micro$oft allowing an ad blocker.
  10. yes ur very right
