Internet Explorer Multiple Vulnerabilities

4 new holes were found in IE today, allowing malicious people to bypass security restrictions and potentially compromise a vulnerable system. How fun. It never stops does it? What if Apple released Safari on Windows? Would it make a dent in the Internet Explorer stronghold? No, but it would make the few Windows geeks who know what Safari is happy. I think it is the greatest feeling when I turn someone on to Mozilla or Firefox, and they find out for the first time how much better those browsers are compared to IE. Source: Secunia

It's unlikely that Apple would create Safari for Windows, but someone could port Konqueror to Windows and then try to fit WebCore around it, and then make it look like Safari :)

Dana:

I switched to Firefox earlier this week. I'm not going back to IE. I was recently the victim of identity theft. I can't prove it was because of the security holes in IE, but I strongly suspect it. Stupid me, I had shut off my firewall for a week or two when I couldn't figure out how to solve a problem I was experiencing with it. Never again.
