It was a giant leap. It's the complete opposite of IE6. IE10 and 11 are better, of course.
>>
>>51474651
Those shitty proprietary standards are mainly for the chrome platform. Apps for ChromeOS, Chrome plugins etc.

Chrome is the best browser when it comes to standard HTML5 support as well.
>>
>>51474615
>This is great for the web. Terrible for privacy, but great for the web.

It actually isn't. Webkit has shitload of bugs, and it is insanely segmented. Every single webkit/chrome version supports different things and has different bugs.

So even if Chrome was 100%, you would still have an impossible amount of bugs to work around.

It's worse than when IE6 had 90% market.

>>51474639
No one is actually developing sites for IE8 now - Microsoft released shitload of tools so enterprises can update IE but keep their old sites working in enterprise mode.

I think I use IE10 as the minimum since it supports history api, svg, css gradients, and css transitions. IE9 falls back gracefully with those (just doesn't display what it can't support, so you get no animations and solid color bg instead of gradient).

Hm. Flexbox still isn't there. Neither are animations and transitions. And dozens of other important features that still need to be polyfilled.

It's better, yeah. At least transforms are finally there. But I still can't think of something major, a game changer that comes before IE 10. But IE 10 is so quirky that it's almost worthless.

>>51474753
What is it then? Some nonstandard thing that all browser vendors decided to implement for some reason? Even if that was true - that's a great thing. I can't believe anyone thought that float, clear and position:absolute were acceptable for achieving layouts.
>>
>>51474651
>>51474684
Every -webkit- prefixed standard is a proprietary one that they submit to the W3C. Then the W3C sits on it for 5 years, changes it a bit and finalizes it.

The problem with that is then you have Chrome supporting both prefixed and unprefixed versions, sometimes both with different syntaxes, because they don't want millions of sites using their standards to break.

So you end up in this weird situation where Chrome sometimes supports only its own -webkit- prefix crap, sometimes only the modern one, sometimes it supports BOTH, and that shit is a pain to get around even if you manually look up every feature as supported or not.

And then you have other issues like viewpoint units being broken for THREE FUCKING YEARS in Webkit, making them completely useless, even though both IE and FF supported them fine for as long. They fixed it now, but you get the idea.

>>51474711
Wrong.

Chrome uses the old browser wars mentality from the 90s, where they keep showing in more features, without actually making sure that those features are properly implemented.

It bumped to 100.
The remaining 3 points were deprecated standards - something useless inside SVG fonts as I recall, that no one used, except for Webkit which only implemented the parts needed specifically for Acid3 to get through.

Once they removed that crap from Acid3, IE9 passed it 100%, and so did Firefox.

IE9 is missing the box-shadow on it though. IE10 does it better.
>>
>>51474790
Oh wow, so it was Microsoft who is responsible for all the terrible stuff that nobody wants to touch even with a 20 lightyears long rod because they are so flawed.

They are the ones who made the DOM, which will hold the web back forever. They are the ones that made CSS, a primitive language that fails at everything that isn't simply "make this red. make this text green" unless you use tons of hacks, violate the shit out of "DRY", and make 15 levels deep div structures because you can't achieve the layout you desire without changing your markup.

And they made the terrible XmlHttpRequest, too! What a surprise! Nobody else would have come up with such a terrible API.

At least Chrome's contributions are actually good.
>>
>>51474790
>You do realize that a lot of this shit isn't actually new, right? They're just open reimplementations of things Microsoft created for IE long ago.

Funny story about that.

Remember the box model bug in IE5? It used to compute CSS Width as the total width of an object, including border+padding. The W3C standard instead said that padding and border goes on top of width, so width:100 + padding: 2 + border: 2 would give you 108px complete width from border to border (but on IE it gave you 100px, with only 92px on the inside for the content).

This is something that everyone considered a huge bug, which is kind of true, even though they fixed it in IE5.5 as long as you weren't using quirks mode.

Some years later we got a CSS property called box-sizing, which allows you to use either the W3C standard, or the IE standard, or an intermediate version where width equals width+padding.

Now fast forward to 2015 and if you look at all the CSS frameworks like Bootstrap, and you'll see that EVERYONE is using box-sizing:border-box, which is how IE did things back in 1999, which was considered a bug.

Funny how things come around.

But seriously, if you don't need a special piece of software that works only on Windows, it seems to me like a smarter alternative to just make an image of the basic Linux distro with only the things you need and not waste more money. Besides, a lot of things nowadays has great software as service alternatives (Google docs etc).
What keeps Windows as an attractive choice in business setting?

>>51480896
Linux is garbage for enterprise machines. We can get into arguments over if it's good for desktops but for institutions and networks it's out of the question. Nothing like GPO, WSUS, domains, etc. Still absolutely god awful at mounting network drives without fucking around in a million config files. And the Linux linux ecosystem at way too fast of a pace when institutions' #1 want is something that will be stable and work for years without needing system upgrades and overhauls.

So, it's time to get yourself a new browser.
>>
>>51474335
If I had a business/company I would choose not to develop for IE at all, even though I would lose like 15% of possible clients.

Why make my devs waste most of their time trying to work with outdated crap, when they could focus on using well-implemented web standards?

Because the most typical IE userbase is corporate whores, who won't buy anything by using the browser anyway, and some computer illiterates or peasants who just use IE because it came preinstalled with the system.

So by not supporting IE you're doing the web a favour and forcing all those retards, including companies, to install a different browser. Simple as that. Yeah, I don't care about your costs, just as you don't care about my costs of developing for IE. So, change your browser with something modern.

>IE is perfectly fine.
It's proprietary, therefore obstructs independent research and code audits, it has insecure defaults, a lack of privacy and security enhancements like other browsers have. The layout engine doesn't adhere to the standards, the InPrivate mode still leaves artefacts regarding visited domains http://malwerewolf.com/2014/06/inprivate-browsing-private-anymore/ which Edge now does as well. Inexcusable, M$ code monkeys are lazy.

Its not perfectly fine, anon.
>>
>>51486966
>So, you're defending an insecure default setting?
Microsoft was forced to set it that way because enough people complained of incompatibilities with legacy junk.

That's why you chose M$, to mindlessly hang onto legacy, even in light of all the security risks it brings. Legacy is bad and it's holding us back.

>>51486831

Still IE8, 9 and 10 are still a problem.

Not to mention the IE dev tools are crapawful compared to Chrome. So if you have to make adjustments in the dev tools to find a fix, you have to put up with that awkward interface.

IE is not alone in that though. Safari is equally shitty in terms of dev tools.

That's on you.
>>
>>51487103
Yeah, legacy is bad, nobody is denying that. But its required. If you were constantly upgrading your systems to "The best next thingTM" all of your company time would be spent trying to fix shit that broke because X new version, bugs breaks and crashes that naturally come from upgrading. It's a massive waste of time and money that only serves to cause more downtime. That's why no company uses Linux, Chrome or Firefox.
>>
>>51490431
Using the latest and greatest may sometimes be problematic, but the same is true for legacy. On the plus side, the more people would use the latest (stable) software, the faster it can be developed and mature. So it's never a waste of time, all you need is (extensive) testing, which may be costly, but is actually an *investment*.

>That's why no company uses Linux, Chrome or Firefox.
These could be poor examples as a very large portion of business servers run Linux. Chrome and Firefox are also very widely used, but I understand what you mean. Maybe DNSSEC and IPv6 are better examples, and that's very sad that they both take such a long time.
