RE: Microsoft Edge

Dear Microsoft

On behalf of web developers everywhere, I’m asking, or rather begging, please stop making browsers.

It’s not your core business, and you are just not good at it.
Give it up!
Let it go.
Stop making my life a living hell of coding around the problems that you make for me.

You can’t fix the problem because you are the problem. So stop trying, and for the love of all that is good, leave making internet browsers to the companies who are actually good at it.

Rather focus on your operating systems, office applications, development tools and hosting (I love what you are doing in the cloud). But when it comes to browsers, step back and admit defeat.


Warm Regards
Carl Bartlett
