Even Microsoft doesn’t want you to use Internet Explorer;
There was a pretty severe bug found, that apparently affects all versions on IE (even the yet-to-be-released IE8 was affected)- what’s even more surprising to me, is that so many people are still using IE6. I guess it’s simply because it came with XP, and because of the enormous flop of Vista, there’s probably even more people using XP than pre-vista-gate.
I’ve been using Chrome as my primary browser ever since (almost) it came out; it has quite a few bugs in it, and the bookmarks support is terrible, but it’s fast and light- and doesn’t seem to eat memory like Firefox likes to (for no apparent reason.)
… if only the google guys would get on a plug-ins system of some kind- I hate having to switch back to firefox all the time for firebug.
Maybe this exploit and all the press it’s getting is really a blessing is disguise for all us developers out there; maybe this will force a large percentage of the IE6 users over to the “other” pile.
