Having spent a lot of time developing an online HTML Editor for our intranet I now appreciate IE11 a lot more. They finally got it right. It is almost completely standards compliant and everything just works the way it should, even more so than either Chrome, Firefox or Safari, which I also have to support.
...and then, Edge.
As soon as Microsoft finally gets something right, full featured and completely working, they have to mess it up with a new, "improved" version.
IE11 was fine, Edge isn't. Windows 7 was fine, everything since isn't. VS2015 was fine, VS2017 isn't. Office... well, you see where I am going with is.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
I have little complaints about IE11 or 10; they're both adequate web browsers. The only complaint I see is some old AJAX UpdatePanels don't always work and I tell the customer to switch to compatibility mode.

Sudden Sun Death Syndrome (SSDS) is a very real concern which we should be raising awareness of. 156 billion suns die every year before they're just 1 billion years old.

I suspect 99% of databases live as long as the product they serve without significant rewrites.
You are probably right. So I should add - the product has been updated 6 times (only major counted) since then... The original version was a desktop application in C and now it is a full web based including support for handheld devices...
