been playing with Ie7 beta still, on a Vista setup and an XP Pro setup transformed into a Vista clone. It's got a pretty good phishing utility that runs, in the form of a pop up, if it thinks somebody is trying to seek out your credentials (or lack thereof). Nice thing to have. IE7Beta seems to be a genuine attempt to get back security.
But so was IE6 update,
..as was IE6.
Come to think of it, did they say that about 5.5 also?
Firefox ain't as immune as it used to be, either. Spyware people even figured a way to launch a popup attack on a NASA scale using Firefox to launch an IE popup attack. Happened to me. Never seen so many browser windows open at one time in my life! I kinda question Firefoxs security anymore, considering that somebody hacked the Mozilla website about a month ago.
We all know that IE7 will become the most widely used browser of choice, for obvious reasons. Competition wont change that- it'd take a Justice Department decision to do it. The spammers and the spyware people will catch up, too. IE7 will be their new target, just for those reasons.
If there is one thing IE7 really has going for it right now, it's that the spyware people haven't caught up with it..
Anybody know where John Titors's '66 Vette is (or was, or will be)?
