Hear, hear.

I really like those dialogs, they are very easy and nice to use.

However, Internet Explorer doesn't support prompt(), which is
incredible irritating and infuriating. So I had to implement one of
those js-libs instead, and tell you what? That was NOT a nice
experience, I tried many different ones, none were as easy and
to-the-point as just the nice prompt().
