The Child of the 90s according to Microsoft

Are you a child of the 90s? If your answer is yes then you can certainly relate to Microsoft’s video advert for the Internet Explorer which depicts what it’s like in the 90s.

The video shows some of the trends and technology during the glory days of Generation Y. It’s the era of the 56k modem, floppy disks, Tamagotchis, and casette tapes. It’s also the time when Trolls were just dolls and not a menace to the online community.

Microsoft was spot in the video except for the hairstyle part. I think the Keempee hairstyle was the “in” thing back then here in the Philippines. And the Pogs! It was the 90s kid’s de facto currency way before Bitcoin was cool.

      What are you? Stuck in the ’90s? Your impression that Internet Explorer still sucks is a sign that your mindset is still stuck in the ’90s decade.

      IE11 is a different game from the old, slow and shitty IE6. Learn how to get out of your old cave, okay?

    • dackku says:

      Mind showing us some benchmarks and figures showing that the latest Internet Explorer 11 has still the same slow speed as Internet Explorer 6, moron?
