We were Netscape for as long as I could hold out. But that "when's the new
release going to come out" nightmare of a few years ago, coupled with key
vendor sites not working with Netscape turned out to be the "nails in the
coffin". It would be a nightmare to dump IE and Outlook and go another
direction. It just really sucks that we even have to deal with this

Subject: RE: [Security400] HUGE Internet Explorer Vulnerability ? Yes/No

Yet another IE flaw to block w/eSafe.

And another unpatched flaw:

YaHoo and MSN have took steps against it, but
nothing stops me from using it in html email or
on one of my sites.

Do some searching and you can find many known and 
unfixed flaws in IE.  Many are there by design and
are not bugs!

Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on me.
Why anyone still uses Internet Explorer for generic
web browsing is beyond me.


Select it's Icon, right click on it, click properties
and then advanced.  Run it under different creditials.
Create a generic user on your computer.  Give it access
to just about nothing (except the install dir and a few
other needed items) and you have a much safer web surfing
environment.  Virtually free of Viruses, worms, and spyware.
