I bet none of you can even give decent reasoning why IE is so bad. You all just jump on the bandwagon the Internet is. Hurr durr IE is slow I know cuz FJ told me so. I better not use anything else but Chrome because I want to be like everyone.
I've asked tons of people why it's so bad and no one could give me a reason except a "I dunno.. isn't it?"

I have both Chrome and IE. They both run perfectly. I haven't measured the milliseconds it takes them to load a page, but I'm pretty sure IE doesn't take significantly more. The same goes for any browser I tried. Some are just more convenient than others.

IE crashes all the time for me, and thats ******* annoying. i only use chrome over FF because google makes solid **** and i like them as a company.

and by "all the time" i mean probably like a couple times a month, if that, which is a couple times more then Chrome or FF do.

Its all about what you are using. If you are running any form of Linux you are gonna want to use firefox. My dad uses IE but I just dont like it. Everything is small and it just doesnt feel right. So honestly, the reason I use Chrome over IE is because I'm used to chrome, I like chrome and it makes me happy. That and I honestly think it is a tad faster.

I open IE and I know it'll still be opening at my funeral.

For me, Chrome actually takes many more seconds to load up than IE, and they both work at the same speed. I also prefer the bookmarks IE offers.
I only ever use Chrome for adblock on occasion.

with the upmost minimum of computer hardware, ex: ram, video card etc, and a fresh installation i then installed both IE and firefox, I.E. froze 5 times before i was even remotely moving, downloaded firefox and it hardly lagged and ran much better. The difference is how it handles data.

when that happens it's probably caused by other software, because IE shouldn't crash on a normal windows installation

IE gives me the "meh" feeling
and I have had some bad experiences with IE in the past; Crashes, Speed problems and the interface is hideous.
I switched from IE to Chrome on an old computer and the speed different was totally mind-blowing. I think it all comes down to personal experiences and preferences

I work at a webhosting company, and 99% of problems with forms and issues with logging in especially with cacheing can be solved with

"Can you try a different browser?" After noticing they're using IE.

And then sometimes I need to explain what a browser is.. and why it isn't windows..

I try to say to myself "They are just unexperienced, this is not their job, they don't have enough knowledge."
But I still want to punch every single one of them in the face...

Then there's those who get pissed at you because they don't understand and they're not willing to learn, then they demand that you do it.. when you can't because it's a local issue.

Then there is the old people, which won't change anything because they are so used to have everything as it is...

On my laptop IE does run significantly slower than Chrome, which is why I prefer it. But maybe that's just me.
