Internet Explorer Wins OTA Award for Online Trust

Quote:

Browser security is similar in some respects to the MPG of your car; everyone might say itís very important but the real value often doesnít hit home until gas prices jump or budgets are tight. Similarly, consumers often only realize the importance of having a trusted, secure browser after they have been on the receiving end of some malicious act; at this point the damage may have already been done.

Hence browser developers must be vigilant and work hard to protect customers from attacks. The work of external organizations such as Online Trust Alliance (OTA) is also important in this effort. OTA is a non profit that contributes to the safety of products by facilitating collaboration on subjects pertinent to security, promoting practices that enhance product security, and contributing to public policy in online services. OTA also recognizes work done to improve the security of products.

Internet Explorer 8 is humbled to be recognized as the recipient of 2010 Excellence in Online Trust Award by (OTA) on September 23. This award represents a strong commitment by Microsoft and Internet Explorer to follow the OTA principles.

The Internet Explorer team has worked hard to create a browser that helps keep you safe online. The technologies present in IE8 that facilitate a safer browsing experience include:
The results of this work are self-evident. Back in July we announced that we had already blocked 1 billion attempts to download malware. Over the course of IE 9 Beta new security features will be introduced, such as the download reputation notification that warns users about higher risk downloads.

If youíre using an earlier version of Internet Explorer you should download Internet Explorer 9. With IE9 now in Beta, you can benefit from enhanced security features as well as from an all-round fast experience with our new clean UI that puts the focus on your sites.

I've been using IE7 ever since it arrived because I agree with the article. I just feel safer how IE and UAC and everything-else works together to make security tighter. Sure, IE has still some flaws, but it's way better than IE6. I'm pretty sure everyone loved Firefox more when IE6 was still dominant.

I use IE9, and I must say I'm impressed by how fast it is.

I agree and if IE had access to some of the add ons that are indispensable to me in Fire Fox I might make the move.

Definitely agree with this. I do prefer to use IE, but the addons I have with Firefox are too good to switch just yet.

I can't stand IE, but it's pretty tight security, and does work like a well oiled machine to provide a good service.

I tried out Google Chrome, though, after using Firefox for the last four years, and I love how light and fast it is.

Definitely, that's why I use Chrome, is all the extensions available. Going without them is just weird. If IE had more add ons (which it has support for now) then I'd be using it.
