Does Microsoft make Internet Explorer purposely not adhere well to standards?

Some people just do not get it and think that it is the other way around says Nick Malik who once worked at Microsoft but was fired. He thinks very poorly when it comes to logic as does a lot of other people out there that are severely wet behind the ears when it comes to rolling in new and better technology and/or standards while at the same time still trying support many useless standards developed in the past by Microsoft and other 3rd party want to be browser developers.

HTML 5 is here to stay and so is a lot of the XHTML 1.0 standards that already exist. Nick went on to say that he realizes that some standards came from Microsoft and that he thinks they did a fine job of implementing them and that invalidates the logic of programmers old enough to be his grandfather. 

He went on to say that IE is a bloated, IMHO. It supports technologies that were widely used in business, but rarely used on the open internet, like ActiveX. New browsers don't offer backward compatibility and are therefore easier to write to the new standards. He then asked me "So, what's the solution? A new, lightweight browser from Microsoft?"

My reply was simple, I told him that Microsoft Internet Explorer takes web pages that are beautiful works of art and trashes them. Google picked up the ball and took the Mozilla browser engine and then had their programmers that they pay quite well, more than Microsoft ever paid any of their employees and had them embark on an internet solution that would eventually make everyone happy. Chrome now in 2017 is making the whole world happy in many ways. The ones smart enough to read and understand an options menu will be the ones to benefit the most. Chrome comes with default setting and they try to keep it set up in a default fashion that should allow even a child or mildly retarded person to comprehend.

Chrome did not insult their entire community of people by forcing a ridiculous zoom level that would trash web pages like FireFox and Pale Moon has done. CSS 3 and HTML 5 can do many things and not all of those things are supported by many browsers. Chrome is an exception to that rule because their programmers know what they are doing. Maxthon and Opera are very close seconds but have a long long way to go to catch up.

FireFox had come a million miles from back in the day when they were once known as Netscape, and later was so playfully dubbed NutScrape. Netscape and FireFox were loved by many but those days are now over. Just like when they killed Netscape, FireFox lies bleeding after a horrible blunder made by some young doofus programmer who is probably still young enough that mommy still makes him pancakes in the morning, driving daddy's car to work until he gets fired and has to get a real jobby. FireFox shot itself in the foot by insulting their entire community while they were using what they thought was an awesome browser. They have broken websites by forcing a zoom on the client side that is in no way correctable. You can't even adjust the browser back or reset it to the factory original settings as they have done away with them without even consulting with their end-user community, and then released it mainstream without even letting the folks run the beta testing it deserved.

I used FireFox for years and when they trashed a site that I visit on a regular basis I was done. FireFox is a piece of garbage now and it was that one little feature that soon enough will creep on every end-user. As a programmer, we have to develop CMS solutions that are supported by every browser and we were doing that just fine. We set the graphics and fonts the size they were intended to be. It's easy enough even for the doofus programmers... We drop a cookie and get the browser information and resolution and we design around that. We did not need for some young programmer who just does not have the experience he needs to make such a decision, one that would trash all the years of hard work that other programmers have done to get FireFox where it was up until recently when many sites loaded and graphics were out of place and no longer pleasant to look at.

Maxthon has come a million miles and is heading in the right direction as well as Opera. There is no future for FireFox or Microsoft IE they have made far too many mistakes and disrespected their community in a way that they will never be able to recover from.  Chakra JavaScript engine and Microsoft's Trident rendering engine (not WebKit) is a joke and always has been. Microsoft is saying the coming new browser will look and feel more like Chrome and Firefox and will support extensions. I hate to say this but we do not care at this point, Chrome and Google have a lot of money and the best programmers that big money can buy. Google has the attention of some the best programmers alive and it will remain that way from now until the end of Eternity. The future looks bright and the only browsers out there that can hold candles to light the same room are Maxthon, Chrome, and Opera
