Germany, France Say Non/Nein to Internet Explorer
France says that Internet Explorer is trés dangereux, and warns French web surfers to drop IE like a hot potato. Germany had earlier issued a similar edict, telling German surfaholics that IE is sehr gefährlich. The sudden European hate-on for Internet Explorer comes from IE's role in China's attack on Google. Just say non/nein.
Regardless of who was behind the attack (*ahem*, Chinese government, *ahem*), the path they tool is now clear: between the I and the E.
Personally, I avoid Internet Exploder because it's crap, but an exploitable security hole is yet another reason to roll with Chrome or Safari or Opera or Firefox (if you're not in a hurry).
