opinion in this time.
I use IE at work. I have had no problems, and our company (a
multinational) is taking no especial steps in regards to the Trojan that
is being bandied about. We keep the machines up-to-date with respect to
the Microsoft security patches. We aren't expecting any real problems.
Here at home, Bev uses IE and I use Firefox. Again we keep the machines
patched up, and we are not expecting any problems on either machine.
I agree that people should make their own decisions, and take control of
their machinery. From my point of view, the debate hinges much more
around good security practices than browser choice.
Of course, this opinion is worth just what you paid for it. = 8-)
