Ubisoft’s web programmers love humor! function iesux()

Ubisoft LogoI was looking at some website’s script files as usual and I stumbled on something that made me smile. I was looking at Ubisoft’s Watch Dog website and saw this in one of their JavaScript script’s code:

function iesux()

//IE Sucks

In this extract, this first line is a function’s name and the second is a comment written by a programmer.

Meaning

IE is a very well known abbreviation for Microsoft’s famous Internet browser, Internet Explorer. As for the rest, you can guess yourself. :D

IMPORTANT NOTE

Please note that Internet Explorer isn’t bad, nor does it “sux”: this code is used to display a prompt for people using an obsolete version of IE, which is dangerous and doesn’t offer all the latest features of modern web browsers. For the regular Joe and Joanna users out there, IE is fine, but it doesn’t pack all the feature that power users & developers need.

Enjoy!
