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.

It is not the first time that BSI ("german government") recommends not to use Internet Explorer.

They did it several times before.

The new thing is that now IE 7 and 8 are out and they are still insecure.
