Another Internet Explorer security problem
Still using Internet Explorer, the slowest, heaviest computer resources user, and the browser that has more security lapses than any other web I know of, then it is time to consider trying another browser unless you are a glutton for punishment. I know, learning the ins and outs of a different browser can be a pain, but, like the man said, “No pain; no gain.”
The favorite browser among bloggers, and the browser I use most, is Mozilla Firefox. It is consistently the one of the fastest and lightest browsers, and it offers the greatest number of useful add-ons of any of the browsers. With all those add-ons you can make it be just about anything you want it to be. It’s primary moneyed backer is Google.
Google has their own browser, it is Chrome. Chrome is the speed champion. That is probably because it uses fewer computer resources than any other. It has a slowly growing number of add-ons. Since Google is the major contributor to Mozilla Firefox, I am not sure how they see developing Chrome. Maybe they see it as a simple and very fast browser for the general public. When I am not blogging or doing research for one of my blogs, I use Chrome. I love it.
Safari, I am told, is a very good browser for PC and Mac users, though it was developed with the Mac in mind. That is one I have never tried. Don’t ask me why, I just haven’t. Maybe it is because I have sort of a built-in aversion to things Apple. Why? Apple is a snobbish company and they charge far more than they, in good conscience, should for their products. Did you ever notice that Mac users tend to be snobs? They are the true believers, believing as they do, that every computer other than a Mac is somehow inferior and harder to use than theirs. They may have something there with usability. Everyone who has used a Mac, that I know of, says the it is more intuitive. I’ll have to take their word for it.
Below is the big IE security leak story of the day. Better read it if you are using Internet Explorer; otherwise your gluttonous appetite for punishment may get its fill.
