The company which brought you Windows Millenium Edition, Vista and the failed DRM protocol Plays for Sure is now bungling the very fabric of the aquarium fresh-salt continuum. In it’s latest promotional ad for Internet Explorer 9, Microsoft has put the siamese fighting fish in a reef tank with what appears to be a ton of stony corals. Are they flippin serious? Talk about a complete lack of paying attention to details. Everyone knows that betas are not Reef-safe, they’ll totally tear up those acros in minutes, gawd! If this bungle is any sign of things to come with IE9 then we say long live the Fox and Chrome.
