Internet Explorer The German government has warned web users to find an alternative browser to Internet Explorer to protect security. The warning from the Federal Office for Information Security comes after Microsoft admitted IE was the weak link in recent attacks on Google's systems. Microsoft rejected the warning, saying that the risk to users was low and that the browsers' increased security setting would prevent any serious risk.

If a country like China are behind the hacking of Google, do you think changing your web browser will make you safe ?

I think they should hire more intelligent people into German Government.
