As usual on different platforms, YOU informed me, that my IE8 would be 'Out Of Date' in short...
I use different browsers and of course - as a programming-experienced - I don't see ANY necessity of 'grading up' my browser, since I don't experience ANY difference (except for spy-ability) in the appearance of those different browsers.
In case of IE8 and the necessity of grading 'up' from W-XP to W-7 I don't see ANY advantage, except for the computer industry, 'cause the lazyboned programmed programs and therefore the resource hungry environment is culminating. Actually my electric-bill simply is doubled because of ill-programmed software with its ill requirements... and I definitely will not contribute furthermore to that illness!
Question: WHY and with WHICH INTENTION are you requesting an 'Upgrade' of any Browser, when I, as a User don't see ANY Advantage in the Behaviour of Use of either Browser? Or Performance or Usability of your Software? Do YOU have an Agreement with Microsoft? To 'upgrade' and support THEIR Shareholder-Values?
Answer me, please: What -in CONCRETE- will be the advantage/s, upgrading to a new Browser - except for supporting better observing-technologies???
Some 'stretched fonts at the bottom' CANNOT be the true reason for this behaviour. Isn't it?
