Because your on n4g, and anything Microsoft is bad.

Firefox FTW

lol at pic, could it be more focused on her boobs?

Actually, any software has holes. MAC OS X, Windows, FireFox, etc. all have holes. Whether or not hackers choose to exploit them is a different story. More people use Internet Explorer, that is a FACT so obviously as a hacker what software are you going to exploit to affect the most users possible??

Lord Anubis3471d ago

i was about to say that. You beat me to it.

have you seen the new firefox logo?

decapitator3471d ago

yeah, that would have probably gotten changed by the admins. Good thing you did not use that.

Homicide3471d ago (Edited 3471d ago )

hmm...I can see where your coming from...

Ashira3471d ago

Bunch of crap, I say.
IE is not that integrated after XP SP2. IE7 does not crash at the said page. ActiveX controls don't run without your permission (again, after XP SP2).
No, IE is not good, but the site is overdoing it.
(Not to mention the pictures has nothing to do with the contents of the actual site.)

Lord Anubis3471d ago

obviously you are not up to date on technology nor IE7 holes.

Breakfast3471d ago

my internet explorer crashed all the time...thats why i switched to firefox...i run vista by the way

LinuxGuru3471d ago

The chick is wearing a shirt with the firefox logo on it.

It's clearly there, you just have to not look at her tits for a few seconds to see it.

Ashira3471d ago

Lord Anubis, you obviously missed my point. Yes, IE7 is full of holes, but the site is making too much fuss of it. The link didn't crash. ActiveX controls does not install by default.
The site's contents is clearly not 100% correct. But they are right that it's better to switch to Firefox and that IE is targeted often and is full of holes.
