    IE11 security problems


    Hi there

    I mainly use KONQUEROR in Linux KDE desktop as my browser now so am un affected with the latest security scares of IE. Now more than ever people should NOT use IE on XP.

    (Conspiracy theory here - I just LOVE them. : Maybe Ms PAID some hackers to generate the problem to force people to upgrade quickly -- if 30% of computers are STILL on XP that's a LOT of money for Ms -- a few million dollars out of the back door probably would be money well spent - or "Invested").

    Konqueror also gives you the choice of rendering - Webkit or KHTML too.

    Cheers
