    Talk about desperation

    Microsoft will try anything.
    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

    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.
    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
