Well Then, Microsoft is More Self-Aware Than We Thought

We’re trying to gather who the brains were behind this rather well-done ad from Microsoft, which has been beaten down over the last several years in the web-browsing department thanks to Firefox and Chrome. Well, the Redmond, WA giant can take its lumps apparently and is capitalizing on the Internet Explorer hate to promote IE 10 in the clip above. Here, we have an internet troll who slowly but surely loses his IE hate after learning more about Microsoft’s latest release. Yep, just like us, all it takes is a mention of karaoke to turn that frown upside down. We’re not sure if this will help MSFT pull of a Rocky vs. Drag0-like comeback, but it certainly does warm us a bit more to the company’s newest browsing experience. Check out more from “the browser you loved to hate” here.
