Hey, did you hear that IE7 was finally released?
No? Cause I did, about 78 million times today. Next Mircosoft fanboi who decides to tell me the good news will die a horrible painful death – I promise!
You see, the thing is that I really do not give a flying fuck about IE7. Please wake me up in couple of years when it becomes the #1 browser so I can stop writing ugly hacks to make web pages work for IE6, and start writing slightly less ugly IE7 hacks.* In the meantime however I’m gonna stick with Firefox for my daily browsing needs. I’m really glad that Microsoft finally got the message, and decided to slightly improve compliance, and add features such as tabbed browsing, RSS integration, and search. It’s about time. But again, why should I care? It’s not like I’m gonna use that thing for anything else than testing my css and layouts.
Judging from what Firefox 2.0 has to offer, IE7 is already obsolete anyway. But hey, whatever floats your boat… Just don’t forget to patch it right away before you browse, cause you may catch something nasty.
* – It appears that Microsoft will push IE7 as a mandatory windows update before the end of the year, so make that few months instead of years.
