Save Internet Explorer 6? You’ve GOT to be kidding me.

Internet-Explorer-8-0-2There are some morons out there who actually want to SAVE Internet Explorer 6. Really? You've got to be fucking kidding me. Who the hell even willingly USES that piece of shit other than to download a better browser like Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera or Safari? I'll give it that. It works fucking GREAT for that. But for anything else?  Not with the modern internet. It's just too out of date with the standards, and webmasters are getting sick of having to rework entire sites just to work on this outdated pile of dogshit. Save IE6. What the fuck? Click here to check out this joke of a site. And yes, do tell your friends to use IE6. When they first get their computers, it'll let them get a GOOD browser. A MODERN browser. Something that doesn't freak out over every little javascript thing that comes up. Something that blocks popups and ads. Something that doesn't take the entire computer with it when a page causes it to crash somehow (there are lots of assholes who run sites specifically for that). Go on. Tell them to use it! And be sure to click the "Sign the Petition" link to see the other morons who who it ... frighteningly enough ... on a regular basis? Don't worry, when you click the link you won't actually sign it.

And I'm well aware that there are people who visit this site who use this browser for some reason. GET A REAL BROWSER. For fuck's sake the thing is 8 years old.

Google Chrome OS!

Yeah, I know I haven't been posting on here lately. Although I have been posting on here lately. But I have been posting on other sites. Given how self centered I am about most things, you'd think I'd be doing more on here. Oh well.

Anyway, Google's OS is coming out soon. Here's some info from the blog:

It's been an exciting nine months since we launched the Google Chrome browser. Already, over 30 million people use it regularly. We designed Google Chrome for people who live on the web — searching for information, checking email, catching up on the news, shopping or just staying in touch with friends. However, the operating systems that browsers run on were designed in an era where there was no web. So today, we're announcing a new project that's a natural extension of Google Chrome — the Google Chrome Operating System. It's our attempt to re-think what operating systems should be.

Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010. Because we're already talking to partners about the project, and we'll soon be working with the open source community, we wanted to share our vision now so everyone understands what we are trying to achieve.

Speed, simplicity and security are the key aspects of Google Chrome OS. We're designing the OS to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds. The user interface is minimal to stay out of your way, and most of the user experience takes place on the web. And as we did for the Google Chrome browser, we are going back to the basics and completely redesigning the underlying security architecture of the OS so that users don't have to deal with viruses, malware and security updates. It should just work.

Google Chrome OS will run on both x86 as well as ARM chips and we are working with multiple OEMs to bring a number of netbooks to market next year. The software architecture is simple — Google Chrome running within a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel. For application developers, the web is the platform. All web-based applications will automatically work and new applications can be written using your favorite web technologies. And of course, these apps will run not only on Google Chrome OS, but on any standards-based browser on Windows, Mac and Linux thereby giving developers the largest user base of any platform.

Hey. I have a netbook! :P Can't wait to give it a try.
