My thats a pretty graph you got there.

The only use Internet Explorer has and it's SOLE purpose in existance, is to download Firefox.

Firefox is the best and most secure browser I've ever used, although I use Safari sometimes for alternate email accounts etc. Tried Opera and I hated it, tried Chrome and it was just turd. Internet explorer is the most useless browser ever.

Note: These are my opinions and I'm damn well entitled to them.

I remember reading an article where various existing hacks and exploits were used against all major browsers from a remote server to several computers tested with near identical hardware configurations.

All of the computers used a major browser (Opera, Safari, Chrome, IE, Firefox, etc.), and all connected to the controlled "Hack server", and were tested for how quickly the security was compromised by the hacks.

The only one left not fully hacked and compromised at the end of a 24 hour period was Google Chrome. Among the first to be compromised within the first 3-5 hours (Not including the near-instant disabling of all IE 'Security') were Firefox and Safari.

I can't find it now, but anyone thinking Firefox is secure when outdated hacks can open it up in less than four hours is playing Russian Roulette with their hardware and software and OS installation.

Plus Google Chrome loads pages so fast on any decent connection that a progress bar becomes a moot point.

I can fully load a long, detailed, interactive 3D animation from my favorite 3D furry animator in less than 30 seconds. Considering the detail, length, amount of different animations, etc. to every one of his works (They're never less than about 8MB in average size even when compressed and reduced resolution to fit the Furaffinity Size Limit), Google Chrome, which loads them in 30 seconds or less, is much faster than the equivalent 45 seconds to 2 minutes to load them of Firefox and IE.

The article was over a year ago. Firefox has patched those security holes a long time ago.
