Microsoft's IE Self-Parody

Internet Explorer has always been ridiculed by computer know-it-alls for its entire existence. Much of this was due to security problems, and many of those were due to IE long being the dominant, default browser on Windows machines.

These days IE is less dominant, but actually a far better browser. I use Firefox more out of habit than preference.

Microsoft, in a rare show of deprecation, makes fun of itself and IE in a new promo video funnily found here.

At one time when you gave a product away and thus drove out competition it was called monopoly tactics. Once the competition is gone or at bay, you can charge what you want. Google has done this. It is unethical, or in their vernacular “evil”, but they get away with it.
