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!

Favorites – Another reason Firefox owns IE

Posted in Browser, Internet with tags , , , , , on April 8, 2014 by Sirusdark

Here’s another reason why Firefox is better than Internet Explorer (IE).

Favorite Characters

Because each IE favorite are saved as files in your Windows user Favorite folder, you can’t use any of these character in your favorite’s name, as they can’t be use in file names:

\ / : * ? ” < > |

Windows Illegal Characters

Firefox bookmarks (aka favorites) uses a Database instead of individual files, and that’s where its strength relies; you can name your favorite favorites any way you want! Tags, rating, search filters and bookmark management (Ctrl+Shift+B) are also just some of the feature you won’t find in IE.

Enjoy!
