Internet Explorer "It's never good to scare away your customers. It's even worse if you don't realize you're doing it. That was me. Like most folks in the developer community, it's been years since I last used Internet Explorer as my daily browser. Oh sure, we all keep copies around for web development work, but Firefox, Chrome, and Safari now rule the web roost. Unfortunately, that was not the case with the Blurity userbase." Wise lesson from Jeff Keacher.

LOL, I would say those pointless, panic inducing dialogs might be a lawsuit waiting to happen.


The scary thing is how easy it is to get rid of those, just sign your executable! O_o What's to stop malware authors and similar from signing their executables and thus avoiding SmartScreen? Heck, how many times has it already happened?
