Anti Internet Explorer Campaign

WordPress.com is vert strongly supporting browsehappy.com, the site browsehappy.com is making people aware of security issues in Internet Explorer.

The home page of browsehappy.com claims that, “Internet Explorer can make your computer unsafe. Why not switch to a browser that’s more secure?”. Many people have shared their stories on the site. If you are being victim of Internet Explorer vulnerabilities and have made a switch to any other browser, then you must share your story too.

The site is promoting 4 popular browsers (Firefox, Mozilla, Opera, Safari).


How do others take this campaign… “Anti Internet Explorer Campaign” or “People awareness campaign”…

Update: The logo will be shown when you’ll be accessing the admin area of your blog using an insecure browser (you know it) 😉

    Oh yay. Another site that is pushing people to other Web browsers without telling them to patch their new alternative browsers.

    Check out the unpatched (insecure) stats for Firefox and Opera at this site – it only takes one unpatched vulnerability to be able to infect a system:

    I imagine you were writting about the template – I don’t know if you have another blog. It was a good choince and in the right moment: I don’t see this template as option in the dashboard.

    Sad that they don’t advertise Konqueror (http://konqueror.org/).
    With KDE 4 it will become available for Windows too, so perhaps we’ll see some more users then 🙂

    Hello all,
    I’m adding to this discussion by informing you of a campaign that I started in order to stop IE6.
    Please, read the full story at http://www.stopie6.org

    I think it’s high time now to stop supporting this old browser, and educating people to switch to either IE7 or another browser.

    Please have a look at my site and feel free to leave a comment.
    Don’t forget also to spread the voice, if you agree with me!

    Thanks in advance,
    Matteo – Stop IE6 Campaign

    That’s exactly why I came up with stopie6.org
    If you read the full story, you’ll see how I stressed the need of keeping up with technology, that is upgrading your browser because just switching to another one isn’t just enough.

    That’s because browsehappy.com is one of their own sites. Up to a short time ago also, there used to be affliate links on that site as well so it was basically an advert you were seeing on wp.com
