Feature Request: Add “Download Chrome” Button to IE

By | November 9, 2013 | 10 Comments


Feature Request: Add Now here’s something funny to kickstart your weekend. Recently, someone submitted a bug report / suggestion to the Internet Explorer team and it sounds like this:

For the upcoming release I would like to see a big button in the middle of the screen labelled “Download Chrome” which takes the user to the Google Chrome download home page and allow them to download Chrome and automatically uninstall IE in a practical and efficient manner.


The person also states that, “this feature has been very highly requested by the IE browsing community.” Unfortunately, such request was denied by Microsoft.

[Thanks, Rafael Luik]

    Really? C’mon. In the days of IE 6/7, yeah IE was terrible. IE8 was ok, but still my least prefered browser. But with IE9 and especially IE10, IE has really moved forward and I actually would choose IE over chrome. Chrome is my least favorite browsers; well maybe Safari- they just cant get anything right over there. ;)
