I’m a huge fan of IE9 which is why I made a bunch of videos about it but what I like is that we’re really pushing ahead with innovation in the space and it feels like hardly a week goes by without there being something (really) good to say about it. The thing is it’s still in beta and not what people should be using right now you should be deploying Internet Explorer 8 as part of Windows 7 and as an upgrade to anything else. Which is why it’s super news that IE8 is included in these figures. NSS Labs have just released a report that – independently – proclaims Internet Explorer 8 and 9 the most secure browsers on the net. Oh how things have changed!
Internet Explorer 8 stops 90% of all malware attacks and IE9 builds on this by stopping another 9% with things like Application Reputation. To provide contrast that’s 5X more than Firefox, 9x more than Safari and 33x more than Chrome.
What does this mean to me, your average IT Professional?
It means lots of things, depending upon your point of view…
You can trust Internet Explorer 9 because of Built-in security, reliability, deployment and control
