IE opens up windows for random spywares to be instantly downloaded without asking.

All of my friends and family use FireFox. I haven't used IE in years.

FF does not open a lot of web pages correctly, until they sort that I will stick with IE. I like the speed, but Chrome is even better but they have issues as well.
