Boycott Microsoft’s IE 7.0 ?



There’s an editorial at Windows IT pro that’s trying to hold Microsoft’s feet to the fire with the upcoming browser release. Disappointed by yesterdays posting that IE will fail the Acid2 test, Paul Thurrott says we should all boycott Internet Explorer 7 until Microsoft gets their act together and makes Explorer more secure and standards compliant.


He suggests Firefox as an alternative or Apple’s Safari, or Opera. In the article he calls Internet Explorer a “cancer on the web that must be stopped”. The link above requires a skip past a full page ad to get to the article.
