Chococat. I didn't mean to start a (/yet another) browser war. IE was the best when it came out, but ~7 years is just way too much on the technological field. It has long lost the advantage it once had, now it's the one that has a lot to do to catch the rest (MOS - Mozilla, Opera & Safari), let alone surpass them. IE 7 was more corrections than improvements, does that tells you anything?
—just when I said I didn't mean for another browser war... oh well, it's true, though.
I hate IE as much as the next web developer(which is why I use Firefox). My original question was more out of curiosity than disagreeing with your statement.
