Mac means never having to say IE.

My primary machine is a MacBook, on which I run Camino, Firefox, and Safari as browsers, and I’m pretty happy with them. Even if I could, I doubt I’d be running Internet Explorer. Microsoft built a browser and included it free with Windows years ago seemingly for the express purpose of killing Netscape. And then they let it stagnate. It only became a concern when Firefox appeared and started to take away market share.

This time I don’t think IE will be killing anything.Even Walt Mossberg suggests that there’s really nothing new there. It didn’t even take very long for the browser built for security to expose a vulnerability.

Hey, no browser is perfect or secure. But I think I’ll stay with browsers that are growing with me, rather than browsers that only respond to customer concerns if their market share is threatened.
