Yeah well 37.5% of internet users don't care about the Future of Internet. In addition, almost 2/3 of users don't use IE, so, we're doing good.

You can't just think this way when you want to create a new website. You need to take other people in consideration! Especially that most of these people don't really know about other browsers.

Much of them may use it at work, where they can not install FF or Opera. Others doesn't know about FF or Opera. But i never saw a man who tried FF/Opera and then used IE & said "IE is better".

@RUSSIAN,
No need to install. They work as portable applications, except for the user profile settings garbage things...

We used to surf with firefox at my university. They blocked it based on the program name. We changed the program name to firef0x and run it. Then they blocked it again based on the file checksum and signature. We patched the file again to hacked_firefox. And now we are working in peace. :p
Actually, We is me. :p

Developers are the most to suffer of IE bullshit. All browsers have unique standards that function pretty well on all of them except IE that has its own standards and doesn't work on all version such as having different results between IE6 and IE7...

CSS, JavaScript / Ajax, Crashing problems... 6.0.5232 handles Ajax better than 6.0.5231. Funny and sad at the same time.

For web developers >> www.ripie6.com

(Got a Canadian user to use Firefox yesterday @ ABC dbayeh (proud))

German government warns citizens off IE
The German government's Federal Office for Information Security is warning computer users in the country NOT to use Microsoft Internet Explorer due to recent security scares.

The state organisation has issued the warning following Microsoft's admission that IE was a 'vector' in the recent attacks on Google in China.

The German government is thus advising its citizens to use alternative browsers such as Mozilla's Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari or Opera.

Assessing the risk

For its part, Microsoft is adamant that the risk to users remains low, with German rep for the company, Thomas Baumgaertner, a spokesman for Microsoft in Germany, claiming that the recent attacks on Google were by "highly motivated people with a very specific agenda" and adding that they were "not attacks against general users or consumers."

"There is no threat to the general user, consequently we do not support this warning," said the Microsoft rep.

Microsoft is advising IE users to set their browser's security zone to "high" although other security experts, such as Sophos' Graham Cluley of anti-virus firm Sophos, have stressed the importance of the fact that the instructions on how to exploit the flaw have been posted online.

"This is a vulnerability that was announced in the last couple of days. Microsoft have no patch yet and the implication is that this is the same one that exploited on the attacks on Google earlier this week," Cluley told the BBC.

"The way to exploit this flaw has now appeared on the internet, so it is quite possible that everyone is now going to have a go."

"We've been working to analyse the malware that the Chinese are using. But new versions can always be created," added Cluley, who has also been working closely with Microsoft, "to see if the damage can be mitigated and we are hoping that they will release an emergency patch."
