My Q&A column in WindowsSecrets this week starts this way:
Reader Ron Hoppe asks whether Firefox still has the edge over IE in security.The article goes on to explain where the current Big three browsers stand. It also gives concrete tips on how you can surf safely using any of today's major browsers, including Internet Explorer. Other items in this column:
"It seems like many of your articles involve IE issues. You do a good job of addressing these issues, but I wonder if it may be a good idea to also recommend switching to Firefox in some of these articles. It just seems to be a much better and more secure browser than any IE version, in any comparison category. Or could I be wrong about that? "Maybe a current discussion would be in order?"Your question comes at a perfect time, Ron. The current versions of the Big Three browsers — Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome — are all very good. So it's a great time to take a fresh look at your browser choices.
