Internet Explorer Recent high-profile security problems with Internet Explorer have done little to dent its market share - or maybe not, according to conflicting reports on web browser use. Web analytics firm OneStat.com reckons that IE's global usage share is 85.85 per cent, an increase of 2.8 per cent since July 2006. Mozilla Firefox's open source browser claims second place with a share of 11.49 per cent, a decrease of 1.44 per cent since July 2006. Apple's Safari claimed 1.61 per cent (down 0.23 per cent), and Opera held 0.69 per cent of the market. However, statistics from websites tools firm Net Applications, cited by Ars Technica, paint a contrasting picture.

You trust IE & Windows to use when you visit your bank site and enter your passwords? To get access to your own money?

Windows of the keylogger & other spyware/malware fame?

Hahahaha thats incredibly funny.

No, you said IE. What difference does the browser make when you're visiting a TRUSTED site but have a keylogger or other malware?

I trust Windows to use when visting my bank site because I know what is on my machine. I only use IE to visit trusted sites and I don't run executables unless they are trusted.

It's only "incredible funny" because you are unable to fathom that some people aren't as incompetent as you when it comes to windows.

Anyway, carry on with your vendetta.
