Site slams IE's security
A group that prodded browser makers toward better standards compliance is urging people to abandon Microsoft's Internet Explorer.
The group has set up a Web site reminiscent of Apple Computer's "Real People" ad campaign, which urged people to switch from Microsoft's Windows operating system to the Macintosh. The site features first-person testimonials of people who switched from IE to alternatives.
"IE was a constant pain," reads the testimonial of entrepreneur David Catherall. "IE didn't feel intuitive at all and appeared to have been built by geeks with geeks in mind -- not novices. As time went on, I became more aware of and worried by the holes in the software which could lead to security issues."
