In mid 2000's (around 2004), IE was way ahead of the mark.

Google was about to have an IPO of a whopping $85.00 / share of stock!!

It is now March of 2015 and that share is worth $555.00 / share!!

That's about a piddling 653 % increase! Imagine if you would have purchased 10 or 100 or more shares in 2004!!

Imagine, all the people....

Back with subject at hand, IE has simply coasted along while Google has been blazing new trails, acquiring new upstarts, interesting ventures, challenging the naysayers and forging ahead!

Apple...well...I guess they will always be the elitist company that they have been! Eventually, their market share will dwindle as if anyone really cared!
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

Of course it is possible to...

Code: [Select]

<!--[if IE]> Downgrade to the old theme <![endif]-->


for users who may be on IE due to company policy.

Yes but this issue is not with the theme, it's to do with web audio...

How odd is life sometimes ?

Expect to see more people using IE again now Chrome no longer supports Silverlight.

I was called to a customer who can no longer watch SKY TV in chrome, "SKY on the go" relies on Silverlight to play videos and do some clever interaction things.

Not to worry I managed to get IE 11 working fine.

Chrome lovers have a play at this game, if you can  :P

Thanks Google, another £45 to go in my pocket, you guys rock  O0

I've played with Silverlight before, it seemed quite good, but I thought they had abandoned it, I must be thinking of something else.

I have four browsers installed so should be fine  ;D

I just use Chrome more because I think it's the best. I can happily live without Silverlight, it doesn't seem that it's really taken off yet anyway.

Well done on the windfall :)
