Thread Title:
Penn State Tells 80,000 Students To Chuck IE
Thread Description:

Penn State University on Wednesday issued an alert to students and staff recommending that they dump IE and use a different browser.

The university's Information Technology Services (ITS) gave the advice "because the threats are real and alternatives exist to mitigate Web browser vulnerabilities," ITS said in a statement. It cited the security problems in IE that have been the focus of both media reports and recommendations from such organizations as the US-CERT, the federally-funded computer response team housed at Carnegie Mellon University.

Hooray!

If they could get their stude

If they could get their students and staff to dump Windows, not just IE, it would be a real victory!

PS. your site works perfectly in my favorite browser Dillo - brilliant!

I just dumped FF and when back to IE

IE still rocks in my world. I have been using FF since 0.6 for testing web sites to make sure they work ok with FF. I decided to convert over on my last fresh install of win xp pro. It lasted a week and I found my self running both of them, and then about another week and I was back to 15 copies of IE up and running. I like the tabs but FF is to slow. Ya I know people will think I am crazy but hey I like IE.
