Just curious does microsoft ever plan to make a new internet explorer?
they ended development for IE for mac a year or so ago
why? because they knew that Safari was more popular and better....
Wish someone would tell my online banking service who keep on telling me to 'upgrade' my browser.
IE for Mac is a dead browser. There is no development being done on it at all.
Thank god, MS Internet Explore for Mac is dead. Even though MS Office (for Windows and OS X) is useful, the rest of MS products are not built too well given their market dominance and money they accumulates. Safari and firefox will take care of web serfing needs.
Yeah same here. Arghhhh ... so annoying!
I wish Microsoft would kill IE for Windows also!
C'mon Microsoft, you KNOW you want a browser thats SAFE with Tabbed Browsing and RSS...
You could tell it to them yourself! No need to wait for other to do it for you...
Oh, but I have...
This might be a bit off topic, so I hope you all don't mind...
(I'll include my standard "I'm new to the mac scene" disclaimer)
If IE is not the browser of choice in the mac world, how do ActiveX, Java, and other "plug-ins' work?
I've heard a lot about Firefox too... what is the "preferred" browser for macs?
I apologize for the dumb questions.
Here is a somewhat quantitative answer that isn't too old: http://www.macpolls.com/?poll_id=438
Most Java that isn't specifically built with Microsoft's development tools works fine. There are some websites that use MS only features, and a few of us have regular problems with them. At present, every website I regularly visit supports Firefox, pretty much, which is what I use primarily.
Infernal Exploder for the Mac doesn't support ActiveX either, so you're not missing anything.
