Yesterday, while composing an email to our IT department trying to persuade them to let me install Firefox on my new computer*, I decided to quickly check that the new version of Internet Explorer doesn't have any of the necessary features** I was claiming were unique to Firefox.
I guess it doesn't:
*it's not so slow that I want to throw it out the window! And it will let me open more than three programmes at a time without crashing! No longer will I have to keep closing and re-opening programmes when I'm trying to compile a progress report from Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Adobe source files, plus PubMed! And the mouse scrolls properly, and the keyboard is crumb-free! I am almost crying with gratitude right now...
**mostly spell check and the Lazarus add-on, for when I'm submitting a grant or report that uses web forms.
