Bye Bye Internet Explorer

(Originally posted 2007-10-07.)

Finally the last web application I use that required Internet Explorer is replaced with a Firefox-friendly version (or so we’ve been told). Hurrah!

Except, as always, I’ll believe that when I see it. (This is our Online Travel Reservations application that used an ActiveX control. Now it looks very much like an Eclipse application, except I’m certain that’s just a styling thing.)

And so I start to think “I wonder if there is any mileage in a Firefox extension mashing up this new application”. I happen to have just such a Firefox extension – that knows which page it’s on and does things the page authors never intended the page to do.) 🙂 But “so many ideas, so little time”.

It’s a nice piece of news for me, though, on a Sunday morning as I prepare for a 4-day trip to Germany. Finally I can say “Bye Bye IE”. 🙂
