An Honest Commercial for IE 9 (Humor)

Microsoft is enamored of their web browser, but many of us who use it on a daily basis are continually annoyed by its lack of speed, instability, and general buggyness. That’s why I am glad to show you this video.

It’s a satirical take on the official Internet Explorer 9 commercial which Microsoft released in March, and it comes far closer to matching my experience with the web browser. While I have not seen it crash quite this often, IE does tend to freeze at irregular intervals and otherwise misbehave. The only reason I still use it is to download Firefox and to visit a handful of sites that still don’t work well with Firefox.
