OK? Do ya got a problem with that? Or do I have to eKick your ass!
Let us leave it at this... I like IE under windows... and you don't.
That's fine, but you are taking to computer folk, so illogical concepts are really difficult for us to understand. We are also apple users, so aesthetics are obviously important to us, too.
AI are you on crack? Why piss off your members?
Here's what happened to me. I have used IE at work for a while, not for any good reason, but just because I was being lazy. Sure I hated all of the explorer windows, but it wasn't incentive enough to move.
Then I started having formating problems here on the AI forums. So I switched to Firebird and then Mozilla. Greatest thing I ever did. I get my tabbed browsing, google in right in the app and have no pop-up problems.
You might want to try doing the same.
It's actually a smart move on whoever is getting the money from the pop-up ads. It's a mac forum and really the only people getting screwed are those using Internet Explorer. So AppleInsider is making money from these advertisers without affecting people posting here (unless you use IE, which most mac users hopefully don't).
That said, shetline's absolutely right that that bottle ad needs to go.
