Who is in charge of Microsoft's advertising?
pfft, this is the actual reality:
also those must be bots created by someone on the league of onideus for them to get killed by internet explorer.
All the robots are cats. I think IE is stuck in 2007, before Chrome existed.
finally an anime for koalarimjob to furiously and painfully masturbate to
Did you get summoned here by the cats in the video?
lol what world are you people living in the alternatives are bloated abortions that don't have any plugin security like activex does so your browsing can and will be hijacked by any malicious program without even needing admin privlages.
The real stuff is worse
Excuse me, but are you trying to say that Internet Explorer is more secure than the alternatives?
I wouldn't have achieved financial success if it weren't for IE fanboys trying to get others to drink the Kool-Aid. Keep selling them on it, @[user]KoalaRimJob[/user].
Yes and study after study proves this, Of course that's just the default configuration not even the hardened configuration ill be happy to compare the security of failfox of chrome addons to ActiveX controls (with Authenticode and the whitelist enabled) any day of the week
Its ok beef you just keep telling yourself that failfox and chrome are inherently secure despite their addons being the new malware capital of the computer.
Course you faggots said this could never happen in the first place because it wasn't part of the os
Got any links to these studies?
Welcome to this decade
Yay! The link game!
In internet explorers defense, they are about to have a slight increase of free advertising in a certain area of the porn industry
Browsing habits and patch discipline for your browser, OS, and plug-ins are more important than a simple variable like what browser you're using. Firefox, Chrome, and IE all have their strengths, but they also all have large user bases and, because of that, they will always be attractive targets for malware authors. If one product created a truly secure browsing experience, emergency security patches wouldn't be necessary and zero day exploits wouldn't exist. Period.
You can be a fan boy of whatever product you want but, if you think you're invincible because you use your vendor of choice, you're wrong.
Oh god, here we go again.
All I see is the NSS Labs studies which really are funded by Microsoft, don't release their testing methodology and are not peer reviewed.
But you did say study after study, so I'm sure you have knowledge of more.
I love this argument because the fags at Slashdot will silmuntaiounsly hold this position and then a few days later link us to NSS labs to tout the security of their network security appliance of choice....Microsoft funded of course
Id also include the NIST reports but Im sure you'd just claim ITSACONSPIRACY
Like, But the difference with IE is you have a plethora of security options for risk mitigation Search engine security, activx whitelist etc etc etc to combat the increasingly common browser hijackers which are to be found on legit website's adverts.
There's a pretty obvious reason why people find more vulnerabilities in Chrome and Firefox.
Open source -> more people look at the code -> vulnerabilities are made public -> patched
Closed source -> only employees look at the code -> vulnerabilities are kept secret -> haxxored
So this is a completely unfalsifiable claim
Lots of exploits -> Its Open Sores That's a good thing! -> Few Exploits -> Its Open Sores That's a good thing!
1. IE gets a free pass from 2001-2005 then
2. How the fuck are in the wild exploits good for the user ? Its not as if these were patched before they were made public.
hurr durr wut is 0day
Something that gets patched a lot quicker in open source projects.
The thing that gets overlooked in these arguments is that things like malware landing pages typically don't just look for one type of vulnerability to exploit. They look for several vulnerabilities and serve the appropriate exploit.
I'm high on pills. I meant to specify that they cater them to the browser you're using and, based on that, it often doesn't matter what browser you use if you aren't highly vigilant about patching your browser and plug ins. Even that isn't enough since 0days aren't confined to one browser vendor.
