    IE has a very bad history of security to where even the United States Government recommended not using it

    'There are a number of significant vulnerabilities in technologies related to the IE domain/zone... It is possible to reduce exposure to these vulnerabilities by using a different web browser'

    http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/713878

    When IE7 came out it was more secure, but it was still too dangerous

    Now that IE8 is out, it is an improvement in security, but it still is less secure than any other browser

    The rumor is that IE is ready to retire its outdated rendering engine, so finally, IE8 might be the last Internet Explorer, thank god!!!

    All IE versions use ActiveX, & Microsoft says this can be "extremely insecure"

    For years, Microsoft Internet Explorer has enjoyed near dominance of the Web browser space--but not any more. Since the release last year of Mozilla Firefox 1.5, Firefox has been steadily eroding Internet Explorer's claim of superiority. According to information from NetApplications.com, in October 2004 Internet Explorer had 92 percent of the market; in September 2005 that dropped to 86 percent; and as of September 2006 Internet Explorer's market share dropped to 82 percent, with Firefox's rising to 12.5 percent. In two years Microsoft ceded 10 percent of its audience to its competition.

    Firefox --- best ever

    Internet Explorer works great, but Firefox is protected much better and doesn't get as much spyware.

    I vote Firefox and that is why!!

    Source(s): I've tried both, but on this computer, I use Internet Explorer.
