I ditched Microsoft’s browser last week, after using it for about 15 years.
For me computers are tools. I find products that work, learn them, and that’s that. It’s irritating when software makers keep changing the interfaces. But I live with it. So I didn’t jump from Internet Explorer when alternatives came along, and it’s been OK.
Until last week when my system updated to IE 10, and most of my online apps stopped working.
It took me half an hour to figure out it was the browser. More time to look for solutions by Microsoft. And five minutes to stop wasting time, grab Google Chrome, install it, and get going. That’s 90 minutes I won’t get back.
Have you ever had problems after an update? And did you switch vendors to get around it?
