Time to Dump Internet Explorer

By on June 18, 2004, 5:23 AM
[COLOR=#1951B9]The latest version of IE is 6, and it has certainly accumulated an impressive record of holes: 153 since 18 April 2001, according to the [URL=http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/vendor/]SecurityFocus Vulnerabilities Archive[/URL].[/COLOR]

So, when was the last time that you upgraded IE to get new functionality instead of fixing the latest security hole?
Please do the Internet community a whole good, take 10 minutes and read [URL=http://www.securityfocus.com/columnists/249]this article at Securityfocus.com[/URL] and then decide if it would be such a bad thing to go away from IE.

I'm using [URL=http://www.opera.com/]Opera[/URL] myself but the author recommended [URL=http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/]Firefox[/URL]. Both of these are excellent browsers that continually get improved.
