The Triangle: Mozilla's Firefox a versatile, secure alternative to IE

USA TODAY: Tired of Internet Explorer's risks? Try one of these browsers

NewsForge: Commentary: Patched in 60 Seconds

ComputerWeekly: Non-Microsoft browsers are most secure choice

And the kicker: Slate: Are the Browser Wars Back? -- How Mozilla's Firefox trumps Internet Explorer. - bear in mind that this is MSN Slate - a Microsoft magazine.

Word is getting around.

The Slate one really cracked me up. I've read a lot of sites about IE's insecurities; I hope this gives Microsoft a swift kick in the ass and hopefully they'll do something to fix their browser! I love me some Firefox.

Hrm, well... http://www.mozillazine.org/talkback.html?article=4964

But it was fixed within a matter of hours. And the best thing is that you know exactly what the patch is going to do. You open it in Winzip/whatever and can view the files in plain text.

And anyway, you could argue that it's really a flaw in Windows...

But still, I hope this doesn't put people off. I'm really starting to think that the tide is now changing and that Mozilla, Opera and Safari will really start to take bites out of IE's market share.

Er, I wasn't complaining about the "bug"... in fact, those links I gave were to articles where people - more than that, well respected companies - are encouraging people to use browsers other than IE. :)

And if you read the NewsForge article, it gives the same views that you did - at least, about it being a flaw in Windows. :)

Yes, that's great. I'm even starting to get random clueless computer users at work asking about Mozilla.
