    Does this site hate Internet Explorer or something?

    Why won't PSU fix the buttons on the Internet Explorer browser? All the other browsers work fine except IE. I hate firefox and don't like chrome. What is the deal? Is it a complicated fix?

    i think its fairer to say IE hates the internet

    IE is the worst browser out there. it has issues with everything as well as being slow.

    This is probably IE's fault. I'm serious.

    IE is still a major browser and needs the buttons to be fixed.

    IE might be one of the major well known browsers, but it's garbage. Shame you don't like firefox or chrome, two browsers that are infinitely better than IE.

    As said, use a better browser. What do you like about IE?

    Like I said, it's probably due to IE, not the site.

    Regardless, why would you willingly use IE? It's slower, buggy, and generally just less user friendly overall.

    Firefox and Chrome are slower, at least to me.

    I give up. I'll just use firefox whenever I get on PSU.

    Must be because of the cold start of those programs (first use of those programs after turning a computer on) compared to the constant usage of IE, otherwise the other browsers have always consistently outperformed IE.

    For the record, IE isn't as bad as people make it out to be:

    IE has improved, but there are other factors than speed like security (including privacy), compatibility etc. These results change quite often as well.

    I use IE too and the for the same reasons: firefox and chrome are just slower for me.

    I was actually going to ask the same question about whether the forum's compatibility with IE is going to get improved?

    At the moment I'm using Chrome only for the forums and IE for everything else which is a hassle.

    What works for IE often doesn't work for firefox and chrome A programmer friend of mine despises IE because he said it doesn't do things the way the standards say they should be done.
    IE doesnt support free codecs for HTML5 audio and video like chrome and firefox.

    You know everyone hates IE whenever they have to resort to advertising it on TV.

    It would behoove you to be more up to date on these sorts of things:

    That's doesn't make much sense. OSX and Windows are/were bot advertised on tv. Hell i'm pretty sure I've seen chrome (browser, not the OS) ads on tv before.

    Any chance we could get someone from the staff to comment on this and let us know if there are any plans to improve the forum's compatibility with IE?

    Yes, the difference being Windows and OSX are GUIs that people buy, then you have IE which is an Internet browser that come preinstalled on Windows with people actively uninstalling it or just ignoring it in favour of better browsers.
