The information published in this post is now out-of-date.—IEBlog Editor, 12 September 2012
I just read
Art Manion’s perspectives piece on cnet. I agree with much of what he says
and encourage anyone who cares about browsers, security, or both, to read it. A few months ago, I offered
my opinion on this topic. We’re still open to feedback on this. We’re
getting a lot of it, privately, as we work closely with and listen to many
security experts as we build IE7.
As Art says, Windows XP Service Pack 2 made important
improvements. I strongly recommend XP SP2, whether you browse with IE or not.
