IE and Life

The other day I sort of had an epiphany, a revelation if you will, which made me realize something hard to accept: Internet Explorer will always be there throughout my entire career working with Internet.

After that had dawned on me, seeing know that IE will never die and be completely be replaced by only competent web browsers in the market, and, IE will always be at least two years behind its competitors, it kind of felt like a legal punishment. “Sorry, mister, but it’s IE and life for you.

Therefore, I decided to make my own rendition of the Skidrow song 18 and Life. Let me present IE and Life:

IE was a young browser, he had a heart of DOS
Lived 9 to 5 and he worked hard to prevent FOSS
Just barely got out of MS labs, came from the edge of town
Rendered like MS Word so no one could take him down, oh no

He had no talent, no, no standards at home
He walked the streets as renderer and he fought the world alone

And now it’s IE and life, you got it, IE and life, you know
Your crime is proprietary and it’s IE and life to go
IE and life, you got it, IE and life, you know
Your crime is proprietary and it’s IE and life to go

VML in his heartbeat, worst CSS bugs you’ve ever seen
He kept his engine running, but it never kept pages clean
They say he loved closed-in, “IE’s the wild one”
Someone should put it out with a strong-enough gun

Bang bang shoot ‘em up, the party never ends
You can’t think of dying when web browser legacy is your best friend

And now it’s IE and life, you got it, IE and life, you know
Your crime is proprietary and it’s IE and life to go
IE and life, you got it, IE and life, you know
Your crime is proprietary and it’s IE and life to go, yeah

“Accidents will happen”, they all heard IE say
He renders pages incorrectly even to to this very day

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
IE and life, you got it, IE and life, you know
Your crime is proprietary and it’s IE and life to go
IE and life, you got it, IE and life, you know
Your crime is proprietary and it’s IE and life to go
