I'am pretty sure the OP was not asking for any of your incorrect opinions about IE. You FF users are starting to sound like the APPLE clowns. FF is a joke and so is chrome. There is No advantage to using them at all, IMO it's a disadvantage.

This doesn't look very efficient to me:

"And as of September, Internet Explorer 8 is blocking 1 in every 200 downloads that appear as malicious. "

Maybe there's something wrong with the writing.
This doesn't seem all that great to me.

IE has a long history of being targeted by hackers simply because it is installed on ALL windows machines to date, this is not a hard concept to grasp and why avoiding it is wise especially when the free competition is often better and is.... free

Calling great free software a joke is remarkable, ITS FREE and whats even MORE remarkable is it's often better than IE made by highly paid "professionals". The real question is where is your money going if others can make better products FOR FREE?
