Internet Explorer Microsoft has unveiled a website aimed at raising awareness of browser security by comparing the ability of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome to withstand attacks from malware, phishing, and other types of threats. Your Browser Matters gives the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome a paltry 2 and 2.5 points respectively out of a possible score of 4. Visit the site using the IE 9, however, and the browser gets a perfect score. IE 7 gets only 1 point, and IE 6 receives no points at all. The site refused to rate Apple's Safari browser in tests run by The Register.

I'm a web developer too and IE8 and 9, while better than their predecessors, are still ugly.

Complex CSS markup that follows W3C standards and works in every other browser doesn't work right in IE. Some jQuery plugins that work fine everywhere else render incorrectly in IE. It's getting better, but it still isn't standards compliant.
