firefox and chrome have just as many flaws, in some cases more, but you don't hear about them as much

there's nothing wrong with internet explorer, like ALL software, it has it's flaws, and so long as you remember that and keep things up to date, it's a perfectly good browser.

anyone who says any other browser is safer are deluded, they may not have the same flaws, but they have flaws all the same.

Firefox and Chrome have DIFFERENT problems, I'd say mostly related to stability or hardware consumption than anything. IE today seems to be pretty stable but it's also only developed for 1 OS. AFAIK, not even Windows XP or Vista get the latest IE version. Chrome, FF, and Opera are supported on just about every platform. That's a lot more debugging to do. Every browser has its excuses. Firefox is open source and seems to have a bad management team, Opera isn't popular to gain a higher userbase (and therefore more developers or bug reporting), and Chrome is still pretty young and is working on new APIs. What's IE's excuse? Safari is probably the only browser that is what it intends to be without failure. Safari is by no means the best browser, I personally dislike it. But I don't really ever hear about stability, security, or incompatibility issues with it.

too my defense! :-) , i struggle to argue will ppl that protect IE.. mainly becos i really dont know where to start coupled with the fact that the person using IE is using it in the face of just ultra hard facts and an ozy eshop charging extra to users on IE cos of the hell he goes through optimizing it for IE... so what can i say new to convince them... thx! lol

ok I should point out I use ie10, and if you really want to get into nitty gritty stuff on security of programs, secunia is a good place to start.

IE10
Chrome
Firefox
