1. Trini’s out of town for the next eight or nine days.
2. I just installed Internet Explorer 8 on my notebook.
So far, the only noxious thing it did was reposition the Language Bar, which I don’t much need, on the Windows Taskbar.
Justifications I plan to offer:
- I wanted to see if you could install IE 8 directly over IE 6 without ever going through IE 7. (Answer: Yes.)
- It never hurts to check out one’s coding in other browsers, and, well, I already have Safari.
Then again, she also warned me against Windows XP Service Pack 3, which I have now installed on three machines without incident. Maybe she’s just more cautious than I am or maybe she’s sufficiently disillusioned by end users that she doesn’t trust anyone to be able to deal with this sort of thing. Having met some of those users, I can certainly understand why.
