It’s Saturday and absolutely heaving it down ‘ere in ‘ampshire, thanks to BT my Internet connection keeps cutting out and my foot is still painful.

So I saw this BBC NEWS and thought I would “have a go”, I am not a fan of Microsoft as a company, their software is Okish, it takes them too long to fix the bugs, maybe they should employ the hackers, it could halve the time.

Anyway the EU has decided that Microsoft is preventing “consumer choice” by bundling IE with XP or Vista or the other operating systems.

Fair point I suppose, but you don’t have to use IE, I do because I am lazy and can’t be bothered to change, my own fault, I am using IE7 because MS told me it was faster, safer and better, bollocks, I have had nothing but trouble with the damn thing, it keeps freezing up.

When I send the “error” message there is a page that says: “this error was caused by Internet Explorer, did this help? Please comment” Which I have, and it hasn’t helped.

But as I said, my own fault.

Another pop at MS BBC NEWS the US financial watchdog, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), has reopened an insider trading inquiry into Microsoft.

And yet another problem for Mr W Gates BBC NEWS Ms are appealing against a 899m euros ($1.4bn; £680.9m) fine given for defying sanctions imposed on it for anti-competitive behaviour.

There are loads of other browsers available Internet Browser Software Review 2009 this site compares the 10 most popular.

To sum up, yes you can use other browsers if you want to, if you are like me and can’t be “bovered”, you will have to put up with the glitches, but isn’t it bloody annoying!

A really boring post I know but that is how I feel-really bored.

I use Firefox, it is more secure and I actually find it much easier to use than IE. That might just be because I am used to it though.
