Microsoft to IE users – Don’t switch browsers!!!

December 16th, 2008

While security experts are urging Internet Explorer users to find a safer browser, Microsoft is recommending users stick with IE:

"I cannot recommend people switch due to this one flaw," said John Curran, head of Microsoft UK's Windows group.

Sorry Microsoft, but this sounds like daft advice to me. It's easy enough for people to have multiple browsers installed on their PCs and to switch temporarily when one is under attack. I usually have IE, Firefox, Chrome and Opera installed on my systems and regularly run more than one browser.
