NewsMax is now reporting that Homeland Security personnel have been told not to use IE until the problem is fixed. As someone before a Congress committee recently said, what difference does it make? :D

Incredible...

Realize only IE security vulnerability issues get this kind of press. If you think any other browsers like chrome, mozilla, opera, etc. dont have just as many security issues, your only kidding yourselves.
Dont forget all those addons that can also carry issues themselves, IE has them but the other browsers seem to have more and more people are using them too.

IE is so imbedded into the windows OS as well, in some forms you are using in it some way.

Those other browsers arent getting updated for new features so much as they are plugging up security holes themselves.

Chrome chrome security issues - Bing

Mozilla mozilla security issues - Bing

Opera opera security issues - Bing
