Serious security flaw found in IE:
Internet Explorer is used by the vast majority of the world’s computer users
Users of the world’s most common web browser have been advised to switch to a rival until a serious security flaw has been fixed.
The flaw in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer could allow criminals to take control of people’s computers and steal their passwords, internet experts say.
Microsoft is investigating the problem and preparing an emergency software patch to resolve it, it says.
Internet Explorer is used by the vast majority of the world’s computer users.
At World Wide Creative, IE and its various permutations provide a constant source of problems, so this is just another incentive to switch to another browser.
On a side note, I’ve officially made the switch to Google’s Chrome, despite the lack of plug-ins and bugginess (although Google claim otherwise). I used to use Firefox, but Chrome is 5 times faster, and they’ve just announced plans to open it up to extensions (e.g. Twitter, StumbleUpon, Delicious, etc.)
I used to enjoy Firefox, but in the Attention Economy, speed takes the winner’s medal every time.
