Microsoft is doing amazing development in the browser market, as if it's coming back, giving Internet Explorer a kiss of life once again with new evolution of IE9, and IE10. That's not enough. Microsoft should get rid of IE7 to save much of developers time and resources. As a developer, I spend many hours trying to fix IE bugs before a project launch which is often delayed by troubleshooting.

While Microsoft is trying to get back millions of users to be part of the new evolution of its browsers, it's high time to kill IE7 as it did IE6 to avoid the negative implications.

Microsoft shouldn't wait until user number counts down to less than 1%. It should say goodbye to IE 7 now.

      Because I hate coding specifically for an antiquated browser.

      It's time to abandon the past, with all

      of it's instability and non-compliance

      in regards to WWW standards. IE7

      is a dinosaur, and it's well-past its time

      to be left behind.

      Because our web developer has to waste countless hours making our website IE7 friendly. Why IE has to be such a different beast is beyond me.
