    Hey everybody

    I first heard about this from a co-worker. Apparently there is a major security problem for those that use Internet Explorer. I didn't see this posted up yet so I decided I should give y'all a heads up.

    Thanks8)

    I´ve ben using Firefox for more than 2 years and am very satisfied with it. If you look at menu of IE8, in fact it´s a copy of Firefox menu, but they start to use it 2 years ago. There´s more security with Firefox as well and especially at ww2aircraft.net my Firefox works a way faster than IE. I have all the threads and pics opened very fast after clicking on it, but in IE I gotta wait few seconds...

    Just switched to firefox today...I noticed a big difference! Must be one hell of a hacker to mess with Microsoft to this degree.

    I wish I had used Firefox years ago. It is much faster in my opinion. Also everything I have read states that it is much much more secure than IE.

    For those using IE 7, there is a security update on the Windows Updater site.
