'In your face, IE8'
From Google's new Chrome Experiments project:
The site presently includes 19 animated micro-games and widgets that are admittedly very cool. For example, one game called Browser Ball lets you load up separate browser windows, then "throw" a ball between them. Google Gravity makes the company's iconic search page shatter to the bottom of the screen, where each of the page's elements remain functional.
Demos at Chrome Tools are all tested with Chrome, of course - but most appear to work with the other major browsers as well. Your millage may vary.
It's all very slick and yes, perhaps even awesome. But Microsoft's argument with IE8 has been that raw script performance isn't really the main concern for your average web surfer. Mind, this position is almost guaranteed to change as soon as IE catches up.
But I'm sure they'd appreciate name suggestions in line with what we've already seen. I like Internet Explorer's "Man-dozer."
re:Internet Explorer browser share
That's a big story - since January 2009, Firefox's user share has been higher than all versions of IE combined. The problem is, the stats are based only on visitors to W3schools - who tend to be web developers, who tend to use standards compliant browsers. Unfortunately it's not an overall indicator of browser usage.
It's too late to ask web designers to stop bogging their pages down in horrid, bloated crap?
New java engines that don't gag (yet) are an encouragement they clearly don't need

But of course we could, lansalot, but the eternal questions are always should we? I am at a loss to conclude other than the result of an anti-intelligence program, whether artificial or otherwise, would be a certifiable madness, and as such, in such would there be no great interest or lucrative funding streams. Although should it be otherwise, then one could and/or would be Tempted with such Artificial Rewards to ...... well, Hexplore the Field for the Sheer Hell of IT. It may offer certain Divine Attractions of the Flesh to Compensate for any Challenge or Assaults on the Soul ...... :-) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hex_(TV_series)
