Spyware Barely Touches Firefox

Internet Explorer users can be as much as 21 times more likely to end up with a spyware-infected PC than people who go online with Mozilla's Firefox browser, academic researchers from Microsoft's backyard said in a recently published paper.



Looks like they tested unpatched versions of IE and FF. It also says that IE has tightened up security (activeX), one of the biggest problems with IE.

I didn't know how **** ( <--- done by myself, not a filter) IE was until I downloaded NetScape, the best decision I've ever made Very Happy

Anyway, I still use I.E. because, FIREFOX MADE ME LOSE DATA 8 TIMES. It crashed, boom, all my bookmarks, extension configs..gone.

Stop using IE. Give hackers a challenge.

well considering that firefox has to continually patch it inorder for it to work properly while IE only patches it on a once in a while basis i think ie is doing pretty good (stable unlike firefox that has to have tons of fixes for it to be used Shocked ) firefox is very hot right now cuz everyone's trying to kill MS Razz (wait lemme correct that it WAS hot Razz)

I think that the nearly only reason why people are still using IE is that they're so lazy. I've even seen people who think that IE = Internet.
I've been using Mozilla (firefox nowadays) now for about three years and i've no reason to use that IE sh*t. Smile

I' m using firefox for a year now and my pc is still virus and spyware free for the first time. Even if I tried to have a clean pc it wasn't possible with internet explorer and I 've never searched pron. I still don't bealive why I hasitated so much to switch couse it's so positive change, I deffinitly recomand u firefox or opera since now is ad-free.

I'm locking this thread because it's gone way off topic. This didn't start out as an Internet Explorer vs Firefox competition.
