How can Microsoft Edge be so wrong?




  • Winner of the 2016 Presidential Election

    It assumes there's a programming error, which is probably correct, since it's trying to load Discourse.



  • Seems odd, though, that it says, "can't find this page". Suggests it can't tell the difference between 404 and 500. Maybe "can't display this page" would have been a better choice?



  • @CoyneTheDup said:

    It does say that on the next line.



  • I'm sorry, but when the big text says FILE_NOT_FOUND it's hard to notice the UNABLE_TO_DISPLAY in the microprint.

    It's a matter of prioritization: larger print is clearly intended to be noticed more easily; especially when it is a title.

    I can't give them a pass on this: their first, largest, title description was FILE_NOT_FOUND.



  • Meh. It's a generic error, it's no biggie.



  • Friendly errors need to fuck off and die in a fire. Ugh.



  • But don't they know 5XX codes are discosuccess responses? Where my message about how OK everything is?
