    What's internet explorer

    There was an article about what to do when internet explorer collapses, So someone wrote in the comments "What's Internet Explorer ?", So another guy answered "it's a program that lets you download a browser".......

    I found it hilarious !!!

    I was a die hard IE guy up until about a year ago... Then I checked out a portable version of FF... Then I accidentally installed Chrome with a Flash update... Been using Chrome every since.

    That seems nearly right "What's Internet Explorer" ?
    Firefox for me, way way way too immature a browser in Chrome.

    I like Chrome, and that's mostly what I'm running on all my stuff these days. FF has some neat plugins and extensions that Chrome lacks, but the gap is closing. Biggest gripe I have with both is that six week release schedule they share. Really? How is that conducive to helping developers or providing stable releases for business customers?

    Honestly I use IE all the time. I only default to other browsers when I have an issue loading a page. My favorite alternate browser is opera, now opera is afflicted with a terrible memory leak but all browsers have a memory leak over time. I do like the interface and how light weight it is if you don't add a ton of tabs.

    Afterthought:
    I hate firefox. Sure back in the days of rocks and the invention of the wheel it was great and secure but I have noted in the past 10 years it's just as apt to being exploited as IE if not worse in my books. I can't even count the number of times that the infector was latched or came through firefox to begin with. Saying that firefox is the best secure browser to me is akin to someone stating that their McAfee security suite catches all of the infections before they affect the PC.

    One Script to rule them all.
    One Script to find them.
    One Script to bring them all,
    and clean up after itself.

    Anymore, it's all about security vulnerabilities in Java and the Adobe product of your choice. Even Chrome, with its built in sandboxing is vulnerable to many of the Zero Day exploits that afflict other browsers.

    Ferrit, that wasn't to slight you. I do stand by my comment though as I've not seen any better security against threats or even effectiveness blocking data mining in a long time. I have also had many a person tell me how superior and secure firefox is when it hasn't proven itself in so long.
