Not sure what’s wrong with some of the marketers out there, but is there really such a big need to fix problems on Internet Explorer, if there’s any? Just take a look at this adsense block.
Not that I’m a big fan of internet explorer or I use IE that much these days, but apart from the fact that IE sucks in supporting web standards, there’s really not much to fix in IE at all.
But why oh why are there ads on it then?
1. Many not-so-computer-literated users
Many will still agree that IE is the dominant leader in the internet browsers market, although that lead is shrinking. If you really consider yourself an educated netizen, consider switching to firefox, opera or safari.
2. They are selling antivirus, ad removal, spyware removal and toolbars
Which in my opinion, you probably don’t need.
3. In conjunction with point 2, affiliate networks pays well to promote those programs, period.
Please correct me if you have a second opinion.
