Since the recent security bridge on Internet Explorer (IE) I have come to encourage you to stop using that browser. Use it once and only once to download another browser and after trash it.

We all know that IE is no longer secure, that browser has suffered the wrath of hackers since time memorial. You are not safe if you are using it. You data is at risk because hackers target it a lot, it is now their hack plan ground.

USA it’self doesn’t trust it anymore, it issued a statement asking people to stop using it until Microsoft sorted it out.

Microsoft is always slow at repairing the bugs in the system yet your data is open to anyone. The last release of IE patches included a fix to a bug that Microsoft had been told about six months ago.

With automatic updates, IE has failed. Failed to automatically check for out of date plugins/extensions. In this era and age IE has no prompt update systems. While we who are using Chrome get updates on the new versions available and even when it is attacked, it is mainly the Adobe Flash that is affected on this browser which can not get you compromised because it is saved on a Sandbox.

I can’t code but I have read somethings in that regard and it seems like IE has it’s only way of interpreting codes away from the “universal” standards by which every internet browser interprets coding. This universal standard is what allows websites to maintain their design and functionality across multiple browsers on a variety of devices.  But when it comes to IE, you will find websites distorted making me think Microsoft opted to follow their own set of rules.

And why can’t IE have a synchronization method, why are there no built-in features to help with bookmarks and more between different browser, even the current IE 8 can’t do this.

I have been told that there has not been a new version of IE for Macs since Safari was developed in 2003 despite the fact that there is a Windows version of Safari.

In this regard, please find yourself a new browser and trash IE.
