    Many browsers, like Chrome, are on multiple platforms. I do know that there was an IE Mac version (stopped developing at IE6, I think), but that was it. Right now, IE is only on Windows, WP, and the Xbox. But do you guys think Microsoft should expand to other OSes, like android and Mac OS X? Why or why not? Post a comment and let us know! And don't forget to take the poll!

    I voted 'meh' since I don't even use IE often on Windows. My preference is Firefox.

    If google can not share its services on windows phone , why should Microsoft support other platform.
    Fact :- if internet explorer was not developed , google must not have been born yet , same applies on chrome , how could any one download other web browsers , ie 11 is far better than ie6&7. Ie 8&9 were OK but windows 8 changed the game. Ie consumes less CPU and ram on my pc , chrome is a memory hog. It always show 80-90% CPU usage and 80% of ram used. Ie works like it should , I mean it consumes less battery,low power on CPU and ram.

    You are right in your first part. But obviously ie11 is better than previous versions. :P

    I prefer Maxthon that crosses over to many different platforms.

    does Maxthon sync bookmarks with the phone counterpart? 'cause I'm currently using Chrync and Opera for Wp to sync bookmarks to my phone.

    No one would use it. IE is extremely general and not as advanced as other platforms

    I'm still trying to figure out how IE is "not as advanced" as other browsers.
