If you're prepared to witness that which the mere mortal mind can not possibly handle, and be bathed in a light of righteous justice, allowing you to perform acts previously though impossible at a mere whim, then this is the absolute safest config for Internet Explorer 8:

Witness it, and be enlightened

Not by a longshot. Internet Explorer is still incredibly insecure, but IE8 has made great strides in that department. Firefox and Opera are far more secure than Internet Explorer will ever be, simply because they are not integrated into the OS, and don't run insecure software, such as ActiveX controls and the like. Just because IE8 has a better phishing filter doesn't mean squat, when the entire browser is one big security hole.

Exactly. I don't know how someone in their right mind could ever think IE is better than Firefox. It's just absurd.

Single system which contains more or less enough tools to complete a whole area of operation. In many cases this has only become possible through digital technology and, in turn, it can make it very cost effective. One of an increasing number of examples is Quantel's Editbox which includes most tools required for editing with all operations co-ordinated in one control system.


IE8 isn't even compatible with 98.9% of the web. Security is no where near as good as Firefox's. IE has insecure software like "ActiveX".



Give us a few reasons why IE is better.

FWIW, I mainly use Firefox myself, but this choice is not based on whether I think Firefox is any more secure than any other browser. My personal opinion is that on Vista/ Windows 7, IE7/8 is more secure than Firefox, one such reason being IE's protected mode.

And once you disable UAC, any, and all protection offered by protected mode is gone. At least with Firefox, you don't have to worry about drive-by downloads, considering it does not allow anything to install by itself.

Why on earth would anybody want to disable UAC?

It's one of the main security features in Vista and Windows 7.

Enough people as to warrant countless guides on disabling UAC. I don't see why they would want to either, but people do some pretty stupid things in the name of familiarity.
