Yes good to see Chrome and others have pushed MS to make -what seems to be- a better product, though I'm not sure it can take back their market share. Also more importantly than fancy graphics: how does it handle the code, that is the main issue for developers (and users who benefit from their work). MS still seems to be focussed on how their browser looks instead of how the content looks. Maybe I'm wrong, we'll see.
With IE getting the (I'll never use, it's still lacking) type thing. Firefox is seriously heading down this road but it's still my browser of choice because of 1 extension (I can't get on with the chrome code inspector). If chrome had a fully fledged firebug extension chrome would be my browser of choice with FF being used only for testing purposes.
Back on topic - Regarding commercials by microsoft they are not shy to experiement *remembers the banned xbox commercials* they were simply awesome and hilarious.
I love the advert, I like a lot of Microsoft adverts, they must work with a great agency to create them.
This one is pretty funny:
I still dislike it though and will install Chrome on friends and family PC's as a primary browser, IE just isn't good enough yet. I want them to view pages how their supposed to be viewed, at their best and IE doesn't do that (most of the time).
