Need Another Reason to Switch?

Internet Explorer version 6 was open to vulnerabilities for 284 days in 2006. Firefox's longest vulnerability period was 9 days.

I'm sure if this woman gets out of prison alive she'll probably never use Internet Explorer. Just another example of American "justice."

UPDATE: Here's another story. This poor 16 year old was almost convicted of possession of child porn and labeled a sex-offender for the rest of his life. The culprit? Spyware, virii, and other malware. You know, that stuff that can make it onto your computer so easily through Internet Explorer without you even knowing anything at all went on your computer.

UPDATE: I just checked my viewer stats and am pleased to report that, while the majority are using non-IE browsers, IEv7 hits are greater than IEv6. While IEv7 is still less secure than any other popular browser it is much better than IEv6.
