Having lost its spot for having the world’s most popular Internet browser, Microsoft’s (MSFT) Internet Explorer is now clawing its way back up as Google’s (GOOG) Chrome continues become the browser of choice. In a rather risky move, Microsoft has launched a new video ad featuring an online troll who goes on a rampage attacking Internet Explorer for its dated compatibility. In the words of the online troll “IE SUCKS!!! 4evUR! Srsly!” Microsoft’s admission that previous versions of Internet Explorer have been lackluster is a step in the right direction if it’s to regain lost market share with Internet Explorer 10. The ad doesn’t tout IE 10 as the best browser available, but shows humility; that Microsoft is aware of its past mistakes, is working on improving IE so that it “sucks less.” Microsoft’s IE 10 ad follows below.
