Microsoft will try anything. (http://www.position-absolute.com/news/microsoft-launches-a-new-contest-that-insults-your-browser/)
Including another low brow effort of theirs that's not appreciated.

the first comment says it all


$10,000 is not enough money to put up with the pain of using IE

Microsoft is getting blasted everywhere for that "get the facts" ad.

This "comparison" actually angered me. How dare they claim to be more compliant with web standards.

The copy writers at MS need to savvy up. Web users aren't technophobic, especially if they're reading about browsers. It's ridiculous.

man this is ridiculous.
They really have improved with IE8, I Agree...
But hell! Please don't lie to me, that's really insulting!

Lifehacker picked up on it. (http://lifehacker.com/5296936/microsofts-browser-comparison-chart-offends-anyone-whos-ever-used-another-browser)


Microsoft's Browser Comparison Chart Offends Anyone Who's Ever Used Another Browser

they've created an absurd piece of propaganda

its own ridiculous set of comments justifying the seemingly meaningless checkmarks

this chart feels like dirty pool to us.

What do you say about that? Haven't tried IE8 but eventually a good way of promoting it. What's with the hunt? Using it so that many would upgrade to IE8? LOL

Reminds me of earlier this year when Microsoft was paying people to use Live search. IE8 is losing market share hand over fist so paying people to use it is the only way to slow that down, I guess.

They were? The only thing I heard about this was Live Cashback or whatever the hell they call it now.

Now that you mention it, I remember that, too, but don't think it was the same thing. Could be wrong, though.

I won!!! It says that page is best viewed in any browser except IE8, Clearly they have not viewed it in IE6... maybe they should say best not viewed by IE at all. Of course png rendering is not the same as box model
