    Does anyone else have an issue with IE when closing it with more than 10 tabs and trying to restore it?

    If he even notices it.
    Is this really an issue, I mean how many people actually use that browser? MS is wasting money fixing the vulnerability if you ask me.

  6. You would think that after 18 or 19 years of MS windows and IE that they would know how to write clear, clean, concise and most importantly SECURE code.

    MS would be foolish to turn their back on IE, before Spartan is released for public use. With that said I can't say I wouldn't do the same once Spartan is released.
