Dear Internet explorer,
You asked me many times whether I wanted to keep you as my default web browser.
I ignored you all the time.
I made fun of you.
I also made memes out of you and kalachufied (made fun of) you.
You know, even when I made fun of you, you would still ask me whether I wanted you as my default browser.
I snubbed you and have always turned down your proposal.
My answer "No Thanks" would have hurt you.
But I never for once stalled and thought how hard it must have been for you.
Now I heard the news that your owners are gonna shut you down.
I don't know if they are gonna repackage you and present you to us in another name called "Sparta". But I might not recognise you by then.
I disowned you for that firefox girl and later ditched her for that chrome blonde. I three timed on all you three before I ditched you for good. Now I feel bad.
I used to get irritated when the above situation arose (see the above picture). I would just restart the desktop computer not knowing what to do.
Now I would not have the privilege to do that because you are gonna leave. I have only memories with me.
I might have cheated you for Chrome; but do you know that Chrome troubles me a lot with many browser viruses these days.
I still have you in a corner of my heart.
I hope that I recognise you when you come in a repackaged format so that I don't treat you the same way Sridevi treated KamalHassan in Mundram Pirai.
Do you know one thing? I typed this post in your lap. Yes I used IE browser to type this post.
I know you would have felt my agony filled finger impressions on the keyboard as I typed this post.
I sign off with tears in my eyes. You were slow; but you were sweet.
I have realised your importance only when you are about to leave the stage.
Your Ungrateful Ex-User
