For all bloggers and content authors there’s nothing more annoying than a browser’s crash just before you were about to hit the ‘submit’ or ‘publish’ button into a blogging or CMS system. With many platforms still lacking an auto-save built-in functionality this can be disastrous. It is not only the waste of time but also the overall frustration and distrust to technology that is being entailed.
Losing a piece of unique content of 1000+ words is something that shouldn’t happen under any circumstances. I still can’t believe that after 15-20 years of browser’s evolution users are still experiencing data loss. It makes me think Lynx and the first Mosaic were more stable than Internet Explo(d)er 8 or even Firefox 3.
Unarguably, quite many content authors still use Interner Explorer, not really because they are happy with it but because it is pre-installed. Others, seem to use it out of habit as they’re reluctant trying out an alternative. And there are so many alternatives that one would really get frustrated trying out Chrome, Firefox, Opera etc.
