TGIF! – A little web-dev Humour

I spent most of last year leading a web development team (mostly because no one else wanted to do it) and I can safely say I -ing hate Internet Explorer. So when I was reading this Slashdot story on increased security in IE earlier this week (alas! without mod points), I had to send The Hero a screenshot.

The subject said, “Did you get the joke?”

Should have been modded funny.

Click to enlarge if the text isn’t clear. MITM = man in the middle attack. Irrelevant to the joke, though.

C programmer that he is, The Hero replied, “There’s a joke?” To understand what it is, allow me to educate you.

Every web-dev hates IE because of this:
ie_testing

Unfortunately, most corporate customers use IE so we need to go in there and fix all those compatibility issues. But…
ie_skeleton

Once it does load, IE is like:

browsers

Therefore, unless you’re at work and the sys admin is evil…
make-internet-explorer-your-default-browser

Don’t feel too sorry for IE. People still do use it.

ie_use

Which brings us back to…image001

Isn’t it hilarious?

Erm… Oh well, ok then. I guess one more won’t hurt…
