I had to back door into ebay from support to avoid upgrading my browser to IE10, is eBay my personal SYS ADMIN now?
I completely agree!! I've just about had it with the constant changes and now not letting me use their site unless I upgrade my browser??? What next, are they going to tell me to by a specific brand of new PC or smart phone? OK Now every frigging website is going to have their own specific browser and set top box. eBay is the perfect example of a 26 year old showing an old CEO a Power Point presentation about how great the new design will be without "the boss" ever even trying it on a "average" pc with an "average" speed internet connection. My gosh I hate these big internet companies. They just don't get it: FAST and SIMPLE are the two most important things to users!
I use a specific browser for a specific reason ( a plugin I use). Ebay is telling me to upgrade??? Who are they kidding?? Some silly inexperienced programmer must have written the code. If their code can't work with IE 9 then THEY have a big problem. I can easily live without ebay and this really turns me off. I just needed another reason besides the deceptive chinese sellers- you order something and it takes 18 days to get to me because they misrepresented their location. Now I must change my browser?? No way.
EBAY - retail is tough and getting tougher. We have lots of alternatives - wise up or lose customers.
One more thing - many people do NOT have administrator rights to change their browser. You just automatically lost them. Good for you...
