Internet Exploder

Most developers knew this day would come-- a new version of Internet Explorer comes around and suddenly, the web application you have spent months crafting falls into a heap. No wonder people call it "Internet Exploder".

Most developers knew this day would come— a new version of Internet Explorer comes around and suddenly, the web application you have spent months crafting falls into a heap. No wonder people call it "Internet Exploder".

And the majority of the problems I have found are around security. Internet Explorer 7 thinks it knows best when it comes to applying security settings. And it is not too easy for users to change the security settings either. Of course, this is all my own fault... I always target my web applications for IE and use specific components, code and techniques that only work within Internet Explorer. But the majority of my software development is for businesses and other organisations where IE is the browser of choice for their standard operating environment.

So here I am, hacking and patching trying to get this rotten web application to work... and it is making Firefox look pretty good right now!
