    I guess the sarcasm isn't sharp enough.

    Either avoid sarcasm on forums, or indicate it clearly, usually it doesn't work out as well as in RL :)

    XenForo itself supports IE7, but no way in hell will I test my code in it. I am sorry. I just won't.

    Well because IE7 is the fastest browser in the world which also supports all the currently available extensions, add-ons, scripts and languages at the same time without any performance loss. Not to mention it's every web-developer's dream to optimize his site for IE7 since it's so easy and follows all the standards.

    Jokes aside, you should always test your code with old browsers and new ones (including IE10/11)

    Sure, why not go with IE1 right on the spot?

    Forget 5 years old browsers ffs, it's not even worth the work to make HTML5 and such work with them when we are 4-5 versions away.

    If you have internet, you can download a newer browser.

    People who uses IE in any version deserves to be burned, or impaled... or both. Damn it's the most insecure browser ever.

    the latest one is a lot faster than chrome.

    idk why people hate it.

    it gets better every release
     
  16. I've heard that the latest IE is faster than Firefox, but slower than Chrome.

    Chrome is relatively fast but eats up a stupid amount of RAM because it loads up multiple instances of the common framework all the pages need so it can use multiple threads. Firefox, on the other hand, leaks a huge amount of memory, which can be resolved with extensions. Mine starts out at 400MB and goes up to 1.2GB easily, but stays between 200MB and 300MB with extensions.

    IE may be faster but it's so broken... :grin:
