Behind Blue Es

Since everyone and his mother is beating down on Internet Explorer, I thought I’d express things from IE’s own perspective:

A picture of the Internet Explorer logo, with pins

No one knows what it’s like
To be the bad browser
To be the sad browser
Behind blue Es

No one knows what it’s like
To be hated
To be fated
To telling only lies

But my dreams
They aren’t as :empty
As my rendering seems to be

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That’s never free

No one knows what it’s like
To feel these feelings
Like I do
And I blame you

No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through (hasLayout issues?)

But my dreams
They aren’t as :empty
As my rendering seems to be

I have add-ons, only properiatary
My love is vengeance
That’s never free

When my CSS display clenches, crack it open
Before I drown it in my invisible-content pool
When I do right, tell me some bad news
Before I laugh and act like a proper tool

If I swallow anything evil
Put your finger down my throat
If I shiver, please give me a blanket
Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

No one knows what it’s like
To be the bad browser
To be the sad browser
Behind blue Es
