UX Fail: IE 9

image

The people who designed IE 9 did a poor job of copying Chrome’s nice and clean interface.

Why oh WHY would the little button to change into compatibility mode (which shouldn’t be necessary at all) be the same size as the refresh button?  And why does the “stop” button never go away? 

It’s all just wrong.  And IE 9 STILL causes layout issues all over the place.  Chrome, Firefox?  No problem, they update every few weeks with nary an problem that has even come close to the shitstorm that happens after an IE update. 

Unacceptable. 

I will only ever use it for testing.
