Suit yourself - but I'm not talking about speed. The speed of a browser is kind of irrelevant. As serv pointed out, IE is incredibly vulnerable to hackers, so just be careful.Yeah, crazy to think that I got it because it is now the fastest browser out there. Beats all the others in virtually every benchmark. I'll take that kind of crazy every day.
Well, that's not really true. But I don't want to argue about web browsers - you guys keep using what you want.there is nothing wrong with IE at all..people just like the bells and whistles of the other browsers but they all are essentially the same damn thing..
a good anti virus can stop a hacker

I don't hate. MS uses a flawed security model....fundamentally that OS doesn't take advantage of the security framework Intel chips provide. we can go into a deeper discussion of this if you like - or the weekly tonnage of MS patches that characterize that software system. I won't single out the poor coding practices of the past since MS is not alone in placing priority on first to market over security.http://www.zdnet.com/blog/bott/internet-explorer-9-is-released-should-you-switch/3058?tag=nl.e539
Haters will hate. I won't hate on MSFT just because they are MSFT. I'll hate if the product is sub-standard. It's easy to write cliches and hatred - real easy.
I owned a very successful high tech company for sixteen years. I could list my certs as well, but the hate will be there no matter what anyone says. I won't hate on your choices - whatever works for you is good.
The MS architecture relies heavily on dlls, fast system calls, vulnerable Browser Helper Objects....a whole bunch of stuff. Has MS security gotten better? Yup. Is it still continually a whipping post? Yup.Fansince, although In my personal opinion you are spot on in the structural problems with MS security model, I will have to admit that most reviews I have read of both Windows 7 and IE9 comment favorably on dramatic improvements in the security area so, who knows, maybe the tide is turning.
