Plea

Please, if you have any compassion.

Stop using Internet Explorer.

The web could be a much cooler, safer, happier place, if IE would die off. That will only happen in average users make the switch. Its happening, but not fast enough for me.

here's a thought... first I should say I totally agree... I use firefox and am irritated when I realize that many of the things I do end up requiring IE...

Anyway... I wonder if we see IE share continue to fall, we will simultaneously see more virus/spyware targeted at firefox, opera, etc... in CERT's recommendation to not use IE, they didn't state necessarily that it was just cause IE had security flaws (though it does), it seemed to focus on the fact that the bad code out there is largely written for IE because everybody uses IE...

So I guess the real question is basically... should we users of Firefox promote it? or could we be "digging our own graves" if you will, as we encourage writers of malicious code to target programs like Firefox?
