[QUOTE=jammydav93;2546288]“And finally, just for good measure, one original feature that Microsoft has added is a notification that pops up when an add-on is slowing down the browser with an option to disable the offending software. We wouldnâ€™t be surprised to see other browsers incorporating this in the near future.”
Hasn’t Chrome been doing this since its release…?
So to sum up, IE9 has no homemade features and have “borrowed” the majority from Chrome. IE has been, and always will be unoriginal junkware to me…[/QUOTE]
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Is it better not to incorporate a feature merely because someone else has something similar, and to have an inferior product instead? Are some of these Microsoft haters going tos ay that no features in the open source Office program are similar in any way to MS Office, or is only Microsoft who is not allowed to do this?
Also, to follow this way of thinking, since Microsoft has automatic enabling of hardware acceleration, Firefox and chrome cannot use this in future releases, not can they utilize HTML 5 because IE 9 already is using this.
For one, I am tired of Microsoft bashers who look for any excuse the criticize the company without ever acknowledging the fact that our industry would not be anywhere as standardized if it were not for their efforts, even if they were not as diplomatic and even handed as they might have been. I don’t see Apple going overboard to allow other manufacturers to use their O/S, something that Microsoft did from day 1.
