The force is strong with Internet Explorer 8, now the most popular browser worldwide, and benefitting from the support of one of the most iconic characters in Star Wars, Yoda. Microsoft Spain has the Grand Master Jedi at the center of an initiative
designed to help end users boost their protection against online-based attacks by utilizing IE8. Fact is that the combination of IE8 on operating systems such as Windows Vista and Windows 7, with User Account Control (UAC) enabled and the SmartScreen Filter will help customers stay secure from the risks lurking in the dark side of the Internet.
“My colleagues in Microsoft Spain have found a pretty creative way of talking about this with their new ‘Yoda’ campaign. Using the character from Star Wars, they have launched an online campaign designed to highlight staying safe online with Internet Explorer 8. Yoda represents the ‘bright side’ – or the Force - of the Internet that embodies Internet Explorer 8. Yoda (IE8) helps users stay away from the ‘Dark Side’ of the Internet by keeping them protected against identity theft, cross-site scripting attacks, phishing attempts, and malware,” Brandon LeBlanc, Windows communications manager on the Windows Client Communications Team, revealed.
