Some people's machines cant handle it, and since USA (I am assuming USA, thats where I live) is in a recession... yeah, cant be helped. Want to get rid of XP? Tell the Chinese to go to Vista/7 or Linux. They hold the world's record for not upgrading past XP.
its a browser man, if Microsoft was mean they could make a perfect browser
and take over the market share but that wouldn't be fair for other browsers
just be happy it works nice
I wish they would make a great browser. It doesn't make anything easier on developers. Lots of people out there still use XP. They really need to add more CSS3 properties at least and release a IE9 Lite version for XP users. It's hard to try something new for my own businesses and my clients, when most the world still uses IE.
I really hate that text-shadow wasn't included. I hate having to use photoshop to make a simple text-shadow for IE users.
Windows XP is in extended support! Windows XP users won't be getting anything other than security updates from here on out. IE 9, Office 15, etc... Is out of the question. Don't like it? Too bad so sad. It's time to move on. Period. Evolve or die.
Not being able to upgrade, is different than choosing not to upgrade for whatever reason. I'm seeing silly excuses all over the place today.
