Is your browser experience really THAT bad where you have to install an entirely different browser?? Is it THAT slow that you think that the promise of a miniscule increase in speed is going to make your life that much more enriched?
Absolutely Not. Don’t believe the hype.
Remember when you switched to FireFox because you thought it would be faster and safer? Remember how, shortly thereafter, all these websites didn’t function correctly? (And many of you blamed the websites for being wrong! No one ASKED you to install the thing.) Internet Explorer is the web standard. 75% of users are using Internet Explorer. Therefore, more websites are going to be compatible with the standard than with anything else. Doesn’t that make some sense?
It’s like buying a toaster in Europe with a European plug built into it, then flying to USA only to find that you can’t plug it into our outlets… THEN getting upset with America for having the wrong outlets. Seriously.
Internet Explorer (IE) is plenty secure, plenty fast, yadda yadda. Give your web designer a break. If people would stop coming up with new ways to make our jobs harder, we might have a fighting chance at making a better product that adheres to those, heaven forbid, standards.
Honestly, the USER is the biggest security hole in the entire thing. If people would just STOP CLICKING on things that say “Would you like to download this virus?” or stop responding to SPAM, most of the problem would be solved. We act as if Spammers are the problem, but it’s the morons that give them their money that encourage it to continue.
