Internet Explorer: Mayans Were Right Because IE10 Is Actually Good Now

In another excellent ad for Internet Explorer 10, the browser pokes fun at itself saying that the sign of apocalypse is here because Internet Explorer 10 is actually good now. This follows up the hilarious video ad that showed internet trolls saying IE10 sucked... less. What a hot streak of hilarious self-deprecating humour!

This whole #themayanswereright IE ad can keep going too (well for like a day). IE is also using the tagline to poke fun of Instagram and laugh at the internet. I've gotta say, I would have never ever considered using IE10 but after seeing Internet Explorer acknowledge its own sucktitude, I may give it a try. MAYBE.

I'm just a slave to advertising. Dammit. Check out more of IE making fun of IE here.

    Have to disagree here IE10 is still a pain in the butt to use , particularly the Metro version. It would be nice if you could customise the thing, maybe then it will suck less.

    Internet explorer will be 'good' when instead of building two sites - one for all other browsers and one for internet explorer - I can build one. Was looking forward to ie10 fixing quite a few things but sadly anything I make that works in chrome, safari and firefox has several elements that break in ie10.

      like what specifically? IE has been pretty good for a couple of versions now.

      Been 12+ years of this arguement, never going to happen.

      The only time I've had to 'fix things for IE' are when the other browsers have ignored syntax errors I've made and IE doesn't, which is hardly something to blame IE for.

      I find Firefox to be harder to code for than IE10.

        I don't know what your building, but I can tell you right now: that is far from the only problem with IE from a web development point of view.

          I haven't come across anything - sure I don't do much with HTML5, but IE9/10 have rendered more or less the same as other browsers for everything I've done recently. But that's just my experience, I'm not saying that I don't believe some developers are still having to do IE workarounds, but my experience has been good so far.

          IE on Windows Phone 7 is another matter though.

    IE10 on a tablet is actually a really good experience.

      I agree to that. On a tablet it's great but on a desktop/laptop it needs to be changed

    If the mayans were so good at predicting things, WTF are they now? I could have asked them what the Lotto numbers were last week and had a share of that $40m :@

    WP8 IE10 is pretty good with HTML5 support and scores 100/100 in the Acid3 browser test.

    But it doesn't do HTML5 inline video!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!1!!!!!!one!!!!!!!!!! (ad nauseum) So no embedded Vimeo or anything. Very disappointed.

      I thought the HTML5 Video spec was more or less open to interpretation with regards to codecs, so it's not consistant across browsers (yet not wrong in doing so).

        That doesn't mean they just shouldn't implement anything. The end user (me) will see that iOS & Android browsers do support it, but WP8 IE10 doesn't.
