Interesting Fact # 1237 - The Internet

France and Germany have issued warnings to web users to find an alternative to Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) in order to protect security.

(A recent attack on Google exploited the vulnerability in IE6, but now the malicious code, which has been implicated in those attacks, has been published online, so it's only a matter of time before other versions of IE are exploited too. What I want to know is, why was Google using IE? Oh I know why, it's because Chrome keeps reporting sites as unavailable (even their own) although I guess that's really good security.)
