ps

I guess this means I am old now that nostalgia commercials are beign produced to get me to buy stuff with my feelings of nostalgia. Damnthat is effective advertising. not as effective as sex, but still effective.

This Sunday if you can watch the Super Bowl, you can have your fill of Commercials. Good ones, bad ones, Retro, futurist, Funny, and Sad, however there will be commercials.

Nice commercial, but I'm still sticking with my beloved fox.

If by fox, you mean Firefox-I agree. Actually, this forum turned me on to Mozilla about 10 years ago now-I think it was pretty new at the time? I've never looked back.

I like this Superbowl commercial. Although some are calling it racist, I don't agree..

Haha...I guess that depends on a definition of 'cool' - I started using it in the mid 0.x release, when it was called um...Firefird...erm....Phoenix.

Crap, I'm getting old. (To that end, that IE ad was really stupid as an ad for IE, but damn, what a flashback to the 90s.)

P.S. Moderately serious question: Why would anyone /want/ to use IE? These days, a browser is a mostly commodity thing - it lets you surf the web, ideally with the least amount of crap inflicted on you. Most of the features are similar. I use Chrome @ work for safety (Windows), and Firefox (extensions!) + Chrome (speed & crashworthy) @ home (Mac). (As for Safari, I consider it to be almost as lame as IE.)

Explorer commercial nitpick...
