    So, everyone hear about the IE breach, that apparently has gone on for a matter of 6 days now. They are recommending to use a diff browser temporarily til they can fix it. What's up with that?! I haven't heard anything til now and it has been going on for 6 days!?!

    A question though, online games don't run directly through IE, correct?

    Ebay:
    Another example of a "meh" attitude toward a company's largest source of income- customers.

    MS has had such a long history of buggy, filled with holes
    product that i have replaced almost all of my MS software with shareware, freeware or 3rd party goods.
    and have had tonnes less complaints.

    this is so stupid. MS knows better but their status as THE OS kings allows them not to care.

    Shhh! Didn't you know this is supposed to be about Microsoft haters coming out and announcing the genetic inferiority of others for using a certain web-browser and/or OS? Those Apple ads tell the haters that they're superior, so it must be true!

    Patch for this was released last night, right? And as much as I like FF, it's expecting a upgrade too, to cover about 4 issues, from that I read.
