The time has come to dump Internet Explorer. No, this is not your humble but dedicated Macintosh fanatic who says so, this is an established MCSE, who happens to like quite a few of Microsoft’s products.
His argument is simple: the benefits of using IE are too few – and the faults too great — to put off the adoption of an alternative any longer. The arguments center around three themes:
– security: Internet Explorer has more holes in it than a Swiss cheese;
– standards: the absolute worst browser when it comes to supporting the standards is Internet Explorer;
– options: there is no reason NOT to switch to an alternative browser: they are actually as good or better than IE.
His favorite alternative browser is Firefox. I agree with him, for whatever that is worth to you. Go download it.
