Knowing When To Run: Cutting Loose From The Little Blue E


The spyware plagues that strike IE are oft-cited by the crowd of Windows opponents (most of whom are zealots) as reasons to abandon IE and Windows altogether and why no sane person should ever use them. While I generally agree with their view, as far as abandoning IE is concerned, I fault the logic that takes them to that view as the reason why it isnít better-understood.

The biggest reason I will never-again use Internet Explorer has nothing to do with the level of security of the product. As weíre seeing with the spate of reported vulnerabilities in Firefox, itís not a cure-all, either, and might be just as susceptible to security problems as IE. However, it has an advantage that IE, treading its current path, will never capture. SecuriTeam Blogs Ľ Knowing When To Run: Cutting Loose From The Little Blue E
